Books Sandwiched In

On Nov. 13, the Friends of the Jim Lucas Checotah Public Library will host Buckboard Quilts historian Judy Howard. Howard will follow the custom of Oklahoma pioneers who stacked their finest quilts flat on the guest bed for all to admire. As she turns each quilt down, she will tell its story.
