Judith Curr, president/publisher of Atria Publishing Group, said the free downloads were to “honor everyone marching and those who can’t participate.” 

“We’re giving these e-books away as a gift because we feel they embody the spirit of the weekend … these titles is a reward and a wonderful way to spend some time with strong women in the fiction and non-fiction world,” she continued.
