2008 - Gee's Bend Children's Book

Random House will publish a children's book titled "Stitchin' and Pullin': A Gee's Bend Quilt" sometime in 2008 - probably the Fall season. The book is written by award-winning author Pat McKissack and illustrated by Sistah quilter and dollmaker Cozbi S. Cabrera.

According to WorldCat, the online library catalog, Stitchin' and Pullin' is about "... a young African American girl [who] pieces her first quilt together, the history of her family, community, and the struggle for justice and freedom in Gee's Bend, Alabama unfolds."
