You'd be surprised how often Joan Rivers shows up in searches for Joan of Arc...she's the other most famous Joan, apparently! The title of her daughter's memoir caught my attention...as did this excellent round up of inspiring women's stories. For all Joan lovers (either or both Joans) you should appreciate this recommendation of new bios about warriors of various kinds!

New Orleans native, Krewe de Jeanne d'Arc member and longtime Joan of Arc fan Alex Labry has published his book PERSONAL REFLECTIONS OF JOAN OF ARC, based on and including his 6+ years of traveling through France photographing statues of Joan. The Krewe de Jeanne d'Arc had the privilege of coordinating and co-hosting Alex's photo display at Ursulines Convent two years ago. He and his wife have since joined the krewe, and hand out images of Joan that Alex has created as their parade "throws". We're so proud to be associated with his beautiful work! If you cannot attend his opening in Austin, you can still find his book online at www.blogart.co/personal-reflections-of-joan-of-arc/ ... See MoreSee Less
