At Home with Literati: Story Time! w/ Lindsey McDivitt

We're pleased to welcome Lindsey McDivitt to our At Home with Literati series for a special story time event featuring the book Truth and Honor.

Click here to join the meeting on 8/30 at 1pm. 

About the Book: When Gerald Ford became president after the turmoil of the early 70s, Americans were ready for an honest, hardworking politician. And that is just what they got with President Ford. He was a man of integrity and honesty, who cared deeply about all Americans. His life, tougher than some and filled with character-building lessons, had prepared him for the job--from his childhood in Grand Rapids, Michigan to his days on the University of Michigan football team and in the Navy to his many years representing the Great Lakes State in congress. In Truth and Honor learn what made Gerald Ford the right man for the job. Backmatter includes a letter from the Ford family and a timeline.

Lindsey McDivitt writes fiction and non-fiction for children. Her picture books Nature’s Friend: The Gwen Frostic Story (2018) and Truth and Honor: The President Ford Story (July 2020) were published by Sleeping Bear Press. A third picture book biography comes out in 2021. Lindsey is passionate about tackling ageism in books for children. She began writing children’s books after many years in health education when she co-edited a book of true stories of hope and healing by stroke survivors. Find Lindsey at where she reviews picture books with accurate and diverse images of aging and older adults on her blog “A is for Aging.”
