BLF Press Newsletter-March 2017

Greetings!
 

It's the Ides of March, and I'd hoped that today might be the beginning of the end for the current political administration. It isn't, at least not so far, so we'll just keep doing what we always do: supporting and amplifying the literary work of women of color. With that in mind, we're offering a 20% discount on your entire purchase for the rest of Women's History Month. Just enter WHM2017 at checkout. .
