Coming Soon as an EBOOK! First Friend Thomas Jefferson: The Original Social Networker
A fun, fast-paced novel that brings our third President, Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809), back to life for the modern day teenager.
I-pad and stylus replace the quill pen and parchment in Kathleen Reid’s innovative retelling of the events of Mr. Jefferson’s life. As one of the most creative technophiles of his time, no doubt Mr. Jefferson would have employed today’s social media wisely, and perhaps in much the same manner as the author imagines.

Jefferson was a collector of knowledge throughout his lifetime. He would have loved Facebook because it would have allowed him to connect on a global basis with “friends” or information sources. In short, Jefferson was a global thinker long before people even understood what that meant.
Jefferson had a passion for architecture which led him to design and build his beloved home, Monticello, which is a 5,000 acre plantation with forty-three rooms in the entire structure; thirty three rooms in the actual house. Forty years in the making, this beautiful home is an example of Roman neoclassicism with influences from French architecture; it’s the only US residence on the United Nations’ World Heritage List. Monticello is a visual treat and describes this complex man in a way that nothing else can.
Thomas Jefferson always wanted to be remembered for three things: Author of the Declaration of Independence, Author of the Statute of Virginia for Religious Freedom and Founder of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

When frazzled mother of four Ashley Gates lets her best friend drag her to a meeting of the local scrapbook club, she’s amazed at the way old photos and mementos can bring vivid color to sepia-toned memories. Among the surprisingly diverse group is Tara, a single grad student whose search for love, like her relationship with her absentee father, has only brought her heartache—and some funny dating stories. Then there’s Libby, a semi-retired teacher who thought she’d spend her golden years taking cooking and photography classes—not as a town pariah after her son is charged in a corporate scandal. And as Ashley copes with a husband whose love for her fluctuates with her weight, she comes to depend more and more on her scrapbooking sisters. For only together can they face earth-shattering revelations and emotionally unavailable men—and figure out their futures while artfully commemorating their pasts
