As we celebrate the New Year, it is a perfect time to reflect on all the books, events, articles, awards, and celebrations across our community. Sharing successes helps support the WNBA’s mission of empowering women in writing.
Fifty years ago, the Women’s National Book Association – San Francisco was founded by Effie Lee Morris, a groundbreaking librarian and educator. She recognized the power of literacy and education in overcoming racism, inequality, and poverty. To celebrate fifty fabulous years, the WNBA-SF hosted an event at the San Francisco public library in March 2018 with a panel of those who knew and worked with Effie.
