AAUW's 50 Books for Young Readers 2010

  Each year, the AAUW St. Lawrence Branch collaborates with the Potsdam, NY Public Library staff to compile a list of 50 books published within the last three years with a women’s history and biography theme.
Anyone looking to buy great books for a daughter, granddaughter, niece, neighbor, or to donate to a book to your local library can access the list for the reading recommendations.
The 2010 50 Books list is available on the branch website at In addition, the earlier 50 Book list from 2009 is still available at the branch website at
Most of the 2010 50 Books are for 9-12 year old readers, but some are for young adults and some are for younger readers (as early as four years old).  The topics include the suffragettes, science and invention, arts and entertainment, colonial America and the revolutionary war, American Civil War and slavery, 1900-1945, religious traditions, sports, (un)common individuals, and film and television, as well as some international women.
