Jennifer Chiaverini! & our October Magazines of the Month

Jennifer Chiaverini author of the popular Elm Creek Quilt series, as well as the stand alone historical novels Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker and The Spymistress will be speaking at Carnegie-Stout Public Library on October 14th. Due to limitations of space, tickets are required to attend this event. Unfortunately, all of the available tickets for this event have been claimed. In fact, all of the tickets were gone within 24 hours!
 
To learn more about Ms. Chiaverini, or to find some reading suggestions, check out our Jennifer Chiaverini Read Alikes blog post. And because our read alike post was written before she turned her pen to the Civil War, you might also enjoy this blog post of Historical Fiction of the American Civil War.

In anticipation of this exciting author visit, we've selected two magazines of the month for October: The Quilt Life and Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting
The Quilt Life magazine is a collaboration between the American Quilter's Society and the stars of the television program The Quilt Show. The magazine, which offers six issues a year, began publication in 2010. Their website provides more information, including patterns:

Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting is created by the team behind the Public Television program of the same name. There are six issues of the magazine every year that include patterns, tips and tricks, and more. There are some fun extras on their website as well, including recipes: www.fonsandporter.com/index.html
