Who Wrote Aunt Flossie's Hats (and Crab Cakes Later)

author
Elizabeth Fitzgerald Howard

Elizabeth Fitzgerald Howard’s grandfather was Cornelius “C.C.” Fitzgerald. His brother Will told stories about their childhood to his daughter Jessie, who passed them along to the author. Inspired by these stories, Elizabeth visited Jonesborough, Tennessee, a town seven miles from where her grandfather grew up. There she learned about a school started by Quakers called the Warner Institute and wrote this story.
