*The Women’s National Book Association was established in 1917..long before the basketball association. In a time before women were allowed to vote, a group of women, who were refused admittance to the publishing establishments on the East Coast of the United States, formed their own collaborative association devoted to everything associated with books. The San Francisco Chapter was established in 1968. Members include authors, indexers, librarians, editors, graphic designers, researchers, publishers, and more. With chapters across the nation, this non-profit organization is an advocate for literacy around the world and a non-voting member of the United Nations.
