Told with captivating storytelling, this memoir explores the many roads that led to the Bernie Sanders mitten meme sensation that followed the 2021 presidential inauguration. Jen Ellis’s debut publication reads like an intimate conversation with an old friend. Vermont teacher, mother, and crafter, Ellis weaves the stories of her life together with humor and thoughtful insight. She shares her struggles with childhood
trauma, infertility, and homophobia and shows us how crafting can build community and generosity can bring joy.” – Excerpt from https://greenwriterspress.com/book/bernies-mitten-maker/
