            Acclaimed writer Elif Shafak writes a letter to Jacinda Arden, Prime Minister of New Zealand after the Christchurch attack. Actress Yasmine AlMassri pens a poem about war for her mother. Activist and TV presenter June Sarpong addresses designer Diane Von Furstenberg. These are a ...few of the moving and insightful letters that make up From Women to the World, a book which brings together letters from a global group of accomplished women - politicians, royalty, actors, writers, activists and more - every one addressed to a woman who means something to each of them. The results are extraordinary, heartfelt letters to historical figures, mentors, family members or inspiring ordinary people. Each is based on these women's personal histories and experiences, drawing attention to social issues such as homelessness, war, LGBT activism, mental health care or the plight of international refugees. From Women to the World is more than a simple collection of letters - it is a book that shows a new model of leadership based on emotional intelligence and demonstrates how we have the wisdom to inspire, motivate and reinvent our world.

            On 2 July 2020, multi-millionaire Ghislaine Maxwell - Jeffrey Epstein's former lover and a close friend of Prince Andrew's and ex-President Donald Trump's - was arrested in new Hampshire on charges relating to the serial abuse of underage girls by the billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.... After a year-long hunt for her by lawyers and the world media and, as it turned out, the FBI, she became one of the most recognisable fugitives around the world. Who was she and how did she fall so far from grace? How did she amass her fortune of over 30 million after being next to penniless following the death of her father? This is the first investigation based on new sources that have become available since her arrest.

            Little Wonder tells the epic, and until now largely unchronicled, story of Lottie Dod, the first great heroine in women's sports. Dod was a champion tennis player, golfer, hockey player, tobogannist, skater, mountaineer, and archer. She was also a first-rate musician, performing ...numerous choral concerts in London in the 1920s and 1930s, including in a private performance before the King and Queen. In the late 19th century, Dod was almost certainly the second most famous woman in the British Isles, bested only by the fame of Queen Victoria. She was fawned over by the press, and loved by a huge fan base - which composed poems and songs in her honor, followed her from one tournament to the next, voraciously read every profile published on her and every report on her sporting triumphs. Yet, within a decade or two of her retirement from sports, Dod was largely a forgotten figure. She lived, unmarried and childless, until 1960, and for the last half of her life she was shrouded in obscurity. In this new book, Sasha Abramsky brings Lottie's remarkable achievements back into the public eye in a fascinating story of resilience and determination.
