Bookish Signs from 2017 Women’s March

The 2017 Women’s March was the largest demonstration in United States history! It’s no surprise, with numbers like that, that there were more than a few book lovers in attendance. From Harry Potter to Hans Christian Anderson, famous quotes and moving messages from books were popular inspiration for handmade signs waving through the air. We’ve gathered up some of the best book themed Women’s March signs from marches across the country. Enjoy!
