Bailey’s (yes the cream liquor in your Nan’s cupboard) have partnered with The Women’s Prize for Fiction to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the prize’s existence to create the truly incredible “Reclaim Her Name” book series.
History is full of female authors who have felt the need to use male pseudonyms to get their novels published or to make sure their novels receive the attention they deserve. Society hasn’t always been, and unfortunately in some cases still aren’t, receptive of women becoming highly successful authors. So Baileys is taking 25 well-known novels and re-releasing them with the authors’ real monikers to give them the credit they deserve.
Baileys have made all the books available to download for free on their website and are also donating physical box sets to libraries across the U.K. You can read more about it here.
