The band of sisters writers, famous writers and academics are putting together a list of the 10 best books about the world of bands of sisters.
The list was curated by writer and podcaster Jen VanDyke and the list includes “How To Write a Book About Band of Brothers,” “The Band of Sisters,” “What Is A Band of Sister,” “A Book About a Band of Women,” “How to Write About a Woman,” “Dying To Write,” “Being a Woman in the World,” and “Why Being a Woman Matters.”
“It’s the best of the best,” VanDys said.
“It’s about a band of women and what it means to be a band,” VanDerd said.
“And it’s about how they survive.
And it’s all about how it feels to be on a band.
And that’s what the list is about.””
There’s really two bands, but one is about the band and the other is about a woman,” she said.
The writers are all women and each has their own take on what a band is, including their favorite band of siblings, and their own experiences with band members.
The writers also are working on their own books about women in the world, but VanDyd said it will be “pretty difficult” to write one about the women in bands.
“I think that women have this very specific experience in terms of what it’s like to be in a band and how they do it,” she explained.
“And then there’s the fact that there’s this very unique thing about what it is to be female,” Vanderd added.
“It feels very much like it’s a very personal thing that’s very personal to the person.”
“The first thing that I did was go and look up bands of sisterhood, and I just couldn’t find any, because there were none,” she continued.
“There’s a group called The Sisters of Mercy, but there’s no one that I could think of that would be like a band, because of the way they relate to each other.”
VanDerd also said that she would have to re-think her approach to her book, because “this band of sister sisters is really important in terms, in terms what it takes to be part of a band.”
The list includes a collection of bands that VanDey wrote about in her memoir, “A Girl in the Fireplace: The Story of a Girl in Band,” and a book about the life of a woman in a family of band sisters, “Birds of a Feather: The Life and Times of Band of Brother.”
VanDerdt said she was inspired by the memoirs of her friends, and she hopes the list will inspire women who are trying to get into the world or who are interested in the subject.
“I think it’s going to be interesting to see who is able to write about what this band of family of sisters has to offer and to tell this story,” she told Hack.
“The list will be the first piece of it.”
“What is a band?
Is it a group of sisters?
Is the band of the sisters, or is it the band that has these women all together?” she said, adding that the list also includes a book on women in music and film.”
You know, in a lot of ways, this is about getting into the business, and the business is about finding talent,” VanDards said.
