Thank You Sarah: The Woman Who Saved Thanksgiving

 

 

A National Book Award finalist teams up with a celebrated picture book illustrator to tell the story of Sarah Hale, who in the 1800s began a letter-writing campaign to designate a day to celebrate the Pilgrims' arrival in America. Her efforts inspired the Thanksgiving Proclamation signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863
