Description: Spinsters Ink was founded in upstate New York in 1978 to publish feminist books. In 1982, we moved to San Francisco and then merged with Aunt Lute Books (out of Iowa) in 1986 to become Spinsters/Aunt Lute Book Company. The Aunt Lute Foundation became a separate, non-profit publishing company in 1990 while Spinsters Ink moved to Minnesota in 1992. Today, we are housed in Duluth's Building for Women with other feminist organizations dedicated to serving women.

Spinsters Ink publishes fiction and non-fiction that deal with significant issues in women's lives from a feminist perspective: books that not only name these crucial issues, but -- more important -- encourage change and growth. We are committed to publishing works by women writing from the periphery: fat women, Jewish women, lesbians, old women, poor women, rural women, women examining classism, women of color, women with disabilities, women who are writing books that help make the best in our lives more possible.

A mystical, mythical, magical fable set in the modern-day world of air travel, telephones, computers, and the World Wide Web. Nin Creed is a feminist poet who embarks on a quixotic quest to recover the lost writings of her late mother, a scholar and linguist who died on the day Nin was born. As she travels from Minnesota to Vermont to Israel in search of her mother's life and work, Nin finds herself accompanied by a few of the legions of women writers who lived and wrote centuries ago and whose work, too, was lost to future generations of writers and readers.

As Nin combs the ancient city of Haifa in search of her mother's scholarly legacy, two medieval intellectuals, Christine de Pizan and Marguerite de Porete,tell their stories, discuss their writings, and even use the Internet to debate the nature of woman with Socrates and Aristotle. Finally, with the help of two ancient Mesopotamian writers -- Enheduanna and Ninshatapada -- Nin recovers her mother's lost writings and in so doing, discovers the power of the written word in linking women to one another across the years, centuries, even millennia.
