Capital Dames by Cokie Roberts | Book Review

Last summer one of my biggest reading accomplishments was reading Capital Dames by Cokie Roberts. As much as I love history and women’s history in particular – Capital Dames was a little bit out of my wheelhouse. After all, I do not prioritize reading non-fiction as much as I would like to.

Forward Me Back To You by Mitali Perkins | Book Review
