Author Signing, Saturday, Nov. 18

Join us on Saturday, Nov. 18 from noon–1:00 p.m. for a discussion and book signing of the forthcoming release Kentucky Quilts and Quiltmakers: Three Centuries of Creativity, Community, and Commerce, by Linda LaPinta. This gorgeous book is the first comprehensive study to approach quilts as objects of material culture that have adorned homes throughout the history of the commonwealth and the country. LaPinta highlights such

topics as quiltmaking in women's history, the influence of early Black quiltmakers, popular Kentucky quilt patterns, types and colors, and the continuing importance of preserving the commonwealth's quilt history and traditions.
