Our book to read and discuss during December 2013 is The Christmas Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini. It's a quick, fun read. Get the book from your local library or bookstore and join us!

This reminds me of the wonderful picture book, The Patchwork Quilt by Valerie Flournoy, pictures by Jerry Pinkney. It's about another quilt created by more than one generation of a family. Here's a video reading of the book.
