Trish Toews shares her love of family, friends and food through the pages of her new cookbook. Growing up in Kansas among the wheat fields and sunflowers Trish and her family relocated to Georgia to experience life in the South. Trish and her husband, Bob, opened their restaurant 211 Main Street in Lavonia, Georgia in 2006 offering award-winning dishes along with true Southern hospitality. The restaurant is popular with locals as well as tourists from throughout the South and now their tried and true recipes are available in this beautiful cookbook, Cooking on Main. Books available for sale/Hardcover/$29.95



Book cover.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt considered his savvy personal secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand, one of the most vital, and certainly one of the most loyal, members of his inner circle. Far more than a secretary, Missy fulfilled the crucial duties of chief of staff (long before the position was formally created), and she was a persuasive voice in policy decisions and appointment recommendations. She was also FDR’s confidante, his support when he contracted polio, and his close friend. Journalist Kathryn Smith finally tells Missy’s story in The Gatekeeper.

A collage of multi-media will be fused with the quilted birds, such as beads, embroidery thread, paint, and patterned fabric to create a unique bird story quilt. No experience necessary!!
