Blogger Book Club - "The Woman I Wanted to Be" by Diane Von Furstenberg


Grab your best reading glasses and join us for another round of Blogger Book Club. I am so thrilled to have been asked to co-host this time around with Vanessa of Entre Nous!
For our March & April read, we will be delving into, The Woman I Wanted to Be, by Diane Von Furstenberg.  I've always been fascinated by her, although I only know the periferal biographical tidbits. 
“In this era when girls are made to think it’s better to be a princess than a person, Diane von Furstenberg’s The Woman I Wanted to Be is just the reverse. I thank her for honesty, spirit, encouragement to be one’s own self in public and professional life, and a memoir that covers more human experience than most novels. Pick it up — you won’t put it down.” Gloria Steinem
“Diane von Furstenberg’s life combines the hallmarks of a fairy tale with the more sober reality of a career woman—and single mother—who longs to have it all. . . . The book is as charming and erratic as von Furstenberg herself . . . the early pages paint a vivid picture . . . her account of those first years is colorful and poignant.” Financial Times
Vanessa shares, "I got a jump start on the memoir over my trip to Mexico and so far I'm completely captivated. DVF does not shy away from heavy subject matter. From her formative years to her contemporary life she is brutally honest and it's those trials and tribulations that make her the woman she is today."

As always you'll have two full months to read The Woman I Wanted to Be, then we'll discuss on April 30th. Use the hashtag #bloggerbookclub if you're reading along.
