About the Event
To be released June 2, 2022, "Ladies First, Common Threads" by author Debra Scala Giokas. Ms. Giokas's book "celebrates 18 first ladies who, at one point in their lives, knitted, crocheted, embroidered, quilted, cross-stitched, or sewed. Their inspirational stories will encourage an appreciation of craft and creativity, patience and perseverance, sacrifice and service, and most of all, the role of the first lady in the history of the United States of America." Ingram Publishing.
This unique look at 18 first ladies, from Martha Washington to Abigail Adams to Ida McKinley to Edith Wilson to Barbara Bush, will help readers touch history with a museum-like experience. Each inspiring story gives a glimpse into the minds and hearts of these historic women, threaded together by pictures of needlework and other fascinating images and photos. Learn about these first ladies' lives, challenges and accomplishments and become inspired to create and make the world a better place, too. - Amazon.
