Description

America has an array of women writers who have made history--and many of them lived, died and were buried in Virginia.(/b>

Gothic novelists, writers of Westerns and African American poets, these writers include a Pulitzer Prize winner, the first woman writer to be named Poet Laureate of the Commonwealth of Virginia and the first woman to top the best-seller lists in the twentieth century. Mary Roberts Rinehart was a bestselling mystery author often called the American Agatha Christie. Anne Spencer was an important figure in the Harlem Renaissance. V. C. Andrews was so popular that when she died a court ruled that her name was taxable, and the poetry of Susan Archer Talley Weiss received praise from Edgar Allan Poe.

Professor and cemetery history enthusiast Sharon Pajka has written a guide to their accomplishments in life and to their final resting places.
