Callista Gingrich Reads to East Providence Children
The wife of presidential candidate Newt Gingrich visited the Weaver Library.
Callista Gingrich made a brief visit to the Weaver Library to read from her book 'Sweet Land of Liberty' to a small group of East Providence families on Tuesday morning. Ellis, a costumed elephant, sat next to the media company mogul.
The book, which celebrates America and features Ellis as a main character, was "well received" by the audience said Youth Services Coordinator Pamela Schweiger.
A woman in attendance with two small children gave Gingrich a small Alex and Ani elephant charm bracelet.
"It was a little gift," Schweiger recounted. "[The woman] said, 'Here's something from Rhode Island I thought you'd like.'"
According to the librarian, Gingrich also stopped by a Middletown library.
