The Golden Thread: How Fabric Changed History by Kassia St. Clair
Artist Joyce Kowba, (and an OCAC board member), reviewed and shared highlights from the book last March in Wood Library’s Books Sandwiched In Program and returns to review it on Saturday, May 7, 2022, at the Ontario County Historical Society Museum.
Read a summary on Goodreads. There are 2 copies in the Pioneer Library System, one at Wood Library.
There aren’t many illustrations in the book, so we have a companion resource with pictures and corresponding page numbers in the book. Download it here!

Submissions are free for OCAC members.
