In 2018, we saw the amazing success of books of, for and by women including books by Michelle Obama, Tayari Jones, Rebecca Traister, Soraya Chemaly, Jodi Picoult, Margaret Atwood, and more.  This panel looks at the success of women in books in 2018, 2019, and beyond, in what is likely to be far more than a year of women in books, but in fact a shift in the marketplace and readership that is here to stay.
