Event Description

Unraveling Yarns about the First Ladies. Lou Henry Hoover and 17 other first ladies who, at one point in their lives knitted, crocheted, embroidered, quilted, cross-stitched, or sewed, are the focus of a new book, “Ladies, First: Common Threads,” by Debra Scala Giokas.

Debra will discuss the research and stories that went into that work.
