Motivational Books on Women in Leadership Featured in LibraryBub Selection for April

LOS ANGELES, April 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Author Mindy Gibbins-Klein explains that “many women want to read books written by people who have experienced similar challenges to them… The different angles and challenges presented by female authors tend to resonate with women in business.” In her book Awakening,  lawyer Areva Martin examines women in leadership and the lies they’ve been told. Her awakening was a realization that despite her hard work, her credentials and her accomplishments, she would not get ahead by staying at the firm that employed her”; she knew she had to step out of that system that she had no control over and build a career for herself. She urges women, “Don’t allow yourself to think that there’s something wrong with you… Don’t stop speaking your mind.” Jill Bausch writes about the need for the same determination in her book Why Brave Women Win. She describes a path for women of confidence and power in the workplace. Her book won a bronze medal for women’s non-fiction in the Readers’ Favorite Book Awards. A reviewer recognizes the strength of Bausch’s “message of empowerment and authenticity…” and sees how “it encourages readers, especially women, to take control of their careers and pursue their passions and purposes”.

LibraryBub is an industry first. Established in 2015, it works in conjunction with all major libraries. It is dedicated to making strong, mutual connections between indie and small-press authors and an extensive network of libraries. The core commitment of the LibraryBub service is to help librarians to identify acclaimed books from the independent publishing sector. LibraryBub introduces thousands of librarians to bestselling and award-winning books from the independent publishing sector. These books hold immense potential for enhancing the lives of their readers. Acclaimed children’s author Tracy Nelson Maurer recalls her visit to the children’s section of her local public library. “It smelled musty and looked shoe-horned into the space. I didn’t care. Shelves at my height held more books than I could count — all for young readers like me! My heart leapt when I learned that I was old enough for my first library card — the key to that vast kingdom of words.” Librarians enable writers to make that kind of difference to people’s lives, and LibraryBub CEO Alinka Rutkowska considers it a privilege to support them in that role.
