This is the final full week of Women’s History Month, so every book on our Hit List is a celebration of women: women who have lived extraordinary lives and women who have made extraordinary contributions to history. We lead the list with Tennessee Lady Vols’ Pat Summitt, the winning-est coach in women’s college basketball history. She had to step down from her post after being diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, but her story of triumph still inspires. (This week also kicks off March Madness.)

Also on the list is a book by Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman selected to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. There’s also Girl of Mine, a children’s picture book about a father’s celebration of his daughter. And this list would not be complete without Maya Angelou. We picked the classic, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, her story of coming of age and literally finding her voice.
