Barbara Johansen’s ALA roundup mentioned a museum visit that sent me in search of one of my favorite DC museums, The National Museum of Women in the Arts.  I decided to take a look in their shop and found this:


This is the Women Writers Umbrella.  I love it!  The writers on it are, starting with the very bottom and moving clockwise, Emily Dickinson, Mary Shelley, Louisa May Alcott, Virginia Woolf, Emma Lazarus, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Sylvia Plath, and Jane Austen.  It’s $27.50.

I also found in their store books by the Guerilla Girls, who I’m now reading all about and finding rather exciting.

There’s also this fabulous Emily Dickinson scarf.
