Save the Dates!
What a great day! Thanks to all who came out to join us at the historic Philadelphia Girls Rowing Club to enjoy the spring sneak peek and the debut of the new title from PS Books, "Extraordinary Gifts," a book inspired by women from the Delaware Valley who have changed the world. Included in this book are such women of note as Marian Anderson, Louisa May Alcott, Margaret Mead and Ruth Robinhold, who founded the Philadelphia Girls' Rowing Club in 1938. Thanks to the artists and writers who shared their work, to Vignette Visual Media for the beautiful design, and to tireless editors Tara Smith, Melissa Tevere, Courtney Bambrick, and Carla Spataro for spending countless hours on logistics to create this work of art. Congratulations on a job well done!
