P&P Live! and DC Public Library Present Sharee Miller-Michelle's Garden: How the First Lady Planted the Seeds of Change

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, March 3, 2021 - 4:00pm

When former First Lady Michelle Obama wanted to showcase the power of plants, she decided to grow the biggest kitchen garden the White House had ever seen. But because she’d never gardened before, she knew she’d need a lot of help. With a group of local students, the White House staff, and President Barack Obama, the First Lady built something beautiful and delicious. Celebrated author/illustrator Sharee Miller shares this inspiring true story with her characteristic warmth and humor.

We are excited to announce that the first 50 attendees/families to join the event and select the "free event admission + free book" option at registration will receive a complimentary copy of Michelle’s Garden: How the First Lady Planted the Seeds of Change for their home library (one book per family please). Recipients of the complimentary copy will pick their books up at the Connecticut Ave. location beginning March 2 (books can be transferred to one of our other locations upon request). These books are generously donated by the District of Columbia Public Library Foundation.

Sharee Miller is the critically acclaimed author and illustrator of Princess Hair and Don't Touch My Hair! She lives and works in Jersey City with her husband and their two cats, Pumpkin and Spice. Her illustrations combine bright colors, patterns, and expressive characters to tell the stories she wishes she had as a kid.
