Author Event: Shannon Henry Kleiber, author of On My Honor: Real Life Lessons from America's First Girl Scout

In every woman's life, there comes a time when she wonders what she should have done differently, and if it's too late. For Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low, that moment was in 1911 when she was widowed in her fifties and completely unsure of what to do with her life. Within the next year, Daisy founded the Girl Scouts of the USA as a group to encourage girls' friendships and make them stronger, more independent women.

As the Girl Scouts nears its 100th birthday celebration, this inspirational book brings Daisy's groundbreaking, classic advice to a new audience through a modern lens.
