Welcome to Legacy: A Journal of American Women Writers

Current News:

Legacy is happy to welcome our new book review editor, Jean Marie Lutes of Villanova University.  A longtime Legacy consultant and former Legacy board member, Jean is the author of Front-Page Girls: Women Journalists in American Culture and Fiction, 1880-1930 (Cornell UP, 2006) and is a prolific scholar of women and periodical print culture.  We are grateful to have her as part of the team, and we invite you to send her your books for review and to contact her if you are interested in contributing to our book review section.

We also thank Sari Edelstein for her superb work as book review editor over the past three years. As her term comes to a close, we want to express our deep appreciation for her vision, creativity, and editorial acumen, which have made book reviews an innovative, fresh, and even more meaningful part of each issue’s scholarly intervention. We will miss working with her!
