Women's History Month: Famous Women's Libraries

LibraryThing has a groovy entry on the libraries of several literary bluestockings.

(Funny, it was posted at their blog in early Feb instead of now, but no matter.)

Wanna read what Sylvia Plath, Susan B. Anthony, Isabella Stewart Gardner, and Marie Antoinette collected on their library shelves? Compare with your own libraries? You can also comment on whose libraries you'd like to see revealed in LibraryThing or elsewhere.

Me, I want to know what's in the libraries of contemporary speculative writers like Katherine Dunn, Jean Hegland, Meg Rosoff, and Aimee Bender, as well as some classic writers and thinkers from the past, like Janet Frame, Carson McCullers, and Helen Caldicott.

Whose library would you like to check out (so to speak)?
