Today renowned author Patricia McKissack connected over videoconference with two groups of elementary students from New Hampshire to discuss her book, Stitchin’ and Pullin’: A Gee’s Bend Quilt. The Alabama community of Gee’s Bend is known for its unique, beautiful quilts. Pat spoke to the children about the meaning of colors and patterns and what they bring to each quilt. She also talked about the writing process for Stitchin’ and Pullin’, as well as some of her other books, like The Clone Codes, and took questions from the students.
