WordSmith

A list of books published by Smith alumnae authors

 
Some of our most influential and iconic authors and poets have been Smith alumnae. From Gone with the Wind author Margaret Mitchell ’22 to Ariel poet Sylvia Plath ’55 to J. Courtney Sullivan ’03, author of recent bestsellers Commencement and Maine, Smith women have made their mark in literature—a trend that continues today. The list below is provided as a service to update alumnae and others on the most recent publications by Smith alumnae. The list is by no means exhaustive, and many authors noted here also have previous books published. We welcome additions; if you have a book that will be coming out soon and would like to have it appear on our “WordSmith” list, please contact Jane Falla, associate editor, at jfalla@smith.edu.
