University Libraries put out the call via social media, and the campus community responded. The question: Who are your favorite female storytellers?

Claire Woodcock

Claire Woodcock holds a few titles from the Norlin Library display honoring International Women's Day March 8.

For her entry of Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God, Alaynah Penalosa (College of Media, Communication and Information, class of 2020) won the raffle prize of a Future Is Female wall calendar, poster and postcard set.

The crowd-sourcing project also has culminated in a Norlin Library book display of 60 titles in honor of International Women's Day March 8. Example titles include Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood, Encounters at the Heart of the World: A History of the Mandan People by Pulitzer Prize winner and CU Boulder distinguished professor Elizabeth Fenn and Take the Cannoli by Sarah Vowell.

The display is located near the west entrance of Norlin Library (closest to Norlin Quad), or the circulation desk, and will be available through March 30.
