Please join us for our August 2024 Book Club Meeting! We’ll discuss The Quilts of Gee’s Bend by Susan Goldman Rubin.

In the rural community of Gee’s Bend, African American women have been making quilts for generations. They use scraps of old overalls, aprons, and bleached cornmeal sacks—anything they can find, and their traditions have been passed down through the decades. Award-winning author Susan Goldman Rubin explores the history and culture of this fascinating group of women and their unique quilting traditions, using meticulous research to offer an exclusive look at an important facet of African American art and culture. A map, directions on how to make a quilt square, endnotes, and an index round out this stunning book.
