WHO FOUNDED THE GIRL SCOUTS?

Stolen from Watermark Books and Café:

Juliette Gordon Low was a singular figure in American history. "Crazy Daisy," as her family knew her, was a vibrant and headstrong woman. Her magnetic blend of fun and determination coupled with an unwavering vision brought the Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) into existence. Acclaimed historian Stacy A. Cordery tells Low’s complete life story in the definitive biography, Juliette Gordon Low: The Remarkable Founder of the Girl Scouts.

Stacy A. Cordery is a professor of history at Monmouth College and the bibliographer of the National First Ladies’ Library. She is the author of Alice, a biography of Alice Roosevelt Longworth, a New York Times Notable book in 2007. She lives in Monmouth, Illinois.

Cordery will be at Watermark Books and Cafe at 7 pm on Tuesday, March 12, 4701 E. Douglas in Wichita
