Vita Sackville-West was an English author, poet and gardener. She won the Hawthornden Prize in 1927 and 1933. She was known for her exuberant aristocratic life, her passionate affair with the novelist Virginia Woolf, and Sissinghurst Castle Garden, which she and her husband, Sir Harold Nicolson, created at their estate.

Vita Sackville-West; aristocrat, writer, gardener and lover of Virginia Woolf. What a beautiful picture of her
13.Woolf uses the stream-of-consciousness technique in the general essay as well as in each of the “Mary” identities that present themselves. She does this to convey not only how the mind of a writer at work may be but perhaps also to show her audience that women too are rhetorically skilled.
"Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind." - Virginia Woolf absolutely love her works and how wonderful to know a women like her walked this earth

Elizabeth "Bessie" Coleman was an American civil aviator. She was the first female pilot of African American descent and the first person of African American descent to hold an international pilot license.
This sharecroppers' daughter had dreams bigger than her home state of Texas could hold. Bessie Coleman became interested in aviation in her early 20s, but as an African American woman, she was denied admission to flight schools. She eventually learned to fly in France. In 1921, she became the first African American female pilot and the first to have an international aviation license.
Happy Birthday, Bessie Coleman!In 1921, Elizabeth “Bessie” Coleman became the first African American woman to earn a pilot’s license. Bessie toured the United States giving lectures at schools and churches in an effort to encourage African Americans to enter the field of aviation. via Tumblr
Elizabeth "Bessie" Coleman (January 26, 1892 – April 30, 1926) "On June 15, 1921, Coleman became not only the first African-American woman to earn an international aviation license from the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale, and the first American of any gender or ethnicity to do so, but the first African American woman to earn an aviation pilot's license."

Elizabeth "Bessie" Coleman (b.1892 –d.1926) was an American civil aviator. She was the first African American female pilot and the first African-American to hold an international pilot license. No American flight schools would accept her because she was black and a woman. No black U.S. aviator would train her either. She took a French-language class in Chicago and traveled to Paris in 1920, learning to fly a biplane there, then returned to America where she became a media sensation.

The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis - Love his books! Audio book s.5-10-13 f.5-21-13 Another great historical fiction from a favorite author!

Pinner's comment: The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis Christopher Paul Curtis is a tremendous writer. He gives breath and life to Deza Malone and her family, and a whole new perspective on the Great Depression. It's like sneaky education. Just, you know, bring tissues when you read it. I worried my boyfriend with my happy/sad crying throughout the book. It's BEAUTIFUL. Also, heart breaking. (And she's an aspiring writer, Miss Malone - see? I have a pattern.)
