Each month, The Fit Book Club selects a book that is written by a female author focusing on a female protagonist.
Our staff writers include a profile of each novel that is selected, along with further insight, interviews, and information about these authors and their stories.
We hope the books selected will pay tribute to inspiring female voices that seek social change through their creative and insightful words.
