June 8 (Note date and location change) — Joan Riegel will present “The Quilts of Gee’s Bend”. Joan will highlight the history of the small rural Alabama town from slave days to the present, the sophisticated quilt making style of its isolated women, and the introduction of their marvelous quilts to the world. We will meet at the Westerville Public Library, 126 South State Street.
