This week for Nonfiction November, we’re revisiting another favorite prompt – Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert – and the link-up will be hosted by Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness. If you answer the prompt too, don’t forget to link-up on her blog before Friday!
Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert: Three ways to join in this week! You can either share 3 or more books on a single topic that you have read and can recommend (be the expert), you can put the call out for good nonfiction on a specific topic that you have been dying to read (ask the expert), or you can create your own list of books on a topic that you’d like to read (become the expert).
For the topic today I’ll be sharing a list of memoirs by women in computer science. For me, this topic is a mix of the three options, since I’ve read one of these books, want to read the rest, and would love your recommendation for more!
I just read and loved Ellen Ullman’s Life in Code (review to come). It’s what inspired me to write about this topic and I can think of several other memoirs I’d like to get to. Specifically on my list already are Ellen Pao’s Reset and Zoe Quinn’s Crash Override. Are there any other memoirs by women in computer science you’d suggest adding to my list?
