The Book Club's December selection is "Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker" by Jennifer Chiaverini. Pick up your copy of the book at our Circulation Desk.  The group will meet for discussion at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 19.

Mrs. Lincoln and her seamstress, Elizabeth "Lizzie" Keckley, a former slave, formed a friendship over the years.  Keckley made history by sewing for Mrs. Lincoln while she was in the White House and was a trusted witness to many private moments between the President and Mrs. Lincoln.
