Women's Day 2011: Who Are Your Favorite Female Authors?

Posted: Updated:

Happy Women's Day! In honor of the special day, Random House asked on Twitter:" Who is your favorite female author and why?" Readers used the hashtag #femaleauthor, and they provided a range of contemporary authors to classic authors. One reader even replied with a brilliant Edith Wharton quote: "She had no tolerance for scenes which were not of her own making."

For us, they're Edith Wharton and A.L. Kennedy. Who is your favorite female author? Let us know in the comments! (And we'd love to hear from some men...the Twitter responses were almost all women!)
