Local Author Barbara Kerley in the New York Times

January 11th, 2009  |  Published in Books  |  1 Comment

Kudos to local author Barbara Kerley for the great review in the New York Times. We've got signed copies in the store, but we don't expect them to last, so get down here now if you want one.  With the Obama girls moving into the White House, this book is a great way to get kids interested in the new First Family, and the kids who have lived in the White House before them.

The Times says, "Kerley reveals the essence of Alice in an upbeat account of her life,
dramatizing Alice’s love of “eating up the world,” as she put it….“I give a good show,” Alice proclaimed. That she did, as Kerley and Fotheringham demonstrate with verve. "

Congrats, Barbara!
