Members of our library mktg dept. attended the AASL conference last week and the buzz from the librarians revolved around the lack of women authors on this year’s Publisher’s Weekly Best Books of 2009 top ten list. 

I just scanned the list myself, and while I am THRILLED to see Gillian Flynn’s Dark Places  on the fiction round-up – I completely agree that it’s shocking to see such male domination.  And they completely missed Jeannette Walls’  Half Broke Horses (Scribner) and A.S. Byatt’s The Children’s Book!

What do you feel PW missed?  Which female authors do you think should be in the top ten list?


Where have all the women gone?
