An Imperfection in the Kitchen Floor

Join us for a book signing and special presentation on life in Willow Grove during 1910s and 1920s by local author Heather Greenleaf.

Greenleaf’s new novel, An Imperfection in the Kitchen Floor, tells the story of two women who, despite living one hundred years apart, face similar sacrifices, difficult decisions, and self-imposed perfection that many women will recognize in their own lives.

Greenleaf’s presentation will look at the history and culture of Willow Grove during the setting of the novel between 1910 and 1920.
