Our book to read and discuss during May 2014 is THESE IS MY WORDS: THE DIARY OF SARAH AGNES PRINE by Nancy E. Turner. It's historical fiction set in the Arizona Territory from 1881-1901. The author based the book on the life of her great-grandmother. Get the book from your local library or bookstore and join us! It's also available on Kindle right here.
If you would like to make a quilt block to represent the book's theme of survival as a pioneer, here are three ideas to get you started. Clicking on each quilt block's name will lead you to the free pattern.
