EXCLUSIVE BOOK SIGNING with Judy Howard
Judy Howard will be on hand each day of the Expo to sign her
books for you and/or a special friend. 100% of profits from
Judy’s books feed needy children.
Since 1976,Judy Howard has owned Buckboard Quilts in Oklahoma City.
Judy’s books Heavenly Patchwork I and II and Centennial Stitches were awarded the Golden Seal as official Oklahoma Centennial Book Projects. Both Heavenly Patchwork I and II received Best Non Fiction Book awards in the Oklahoma Writers’ Federation Inc. Regional Contest.
Judy’s latest book is 1905 Cookbook which is the history of central Oklahoma.
The book blends the lives and recipes of women who settled in Oklahoma before statehood. The author has given us a special insight into the challenges of living and preparing food 100 years ago.
The life stories of the women along with pictures and advertisements provide a glimpse into the culture of pre-statehood Oklahoma. Pioneers traveled by horse and buggy, and merchant’s advertised up-to-date clothing and available merchandise including glass eyes and cook stoves that could bake biscuits in three minutes. Telephone numbers were single or double digits. Throughout the book are posed photographs of unsmiling dignified people in their finest clothing. Casual photography was years away.
This cookbook is beautifully illustrated with 200 vintage photos and a joy to read. Judy discovered at a flea market the original 1905 cookbook published to raise funds for schoolteachers’ salaries in Edmond. The updated 1905 Cookbook profits feed starving children. Seldom does a book reflect so completely the culture and lives of the settlers in Oklahoma at the turn of the century.
Stop by and visit with Judy during the Expo. You’ll find her at the Bed Turning Quilt Show exhibit.
