New York Times correspondent and author Rachel L. Swarns will be signing her new book, “American Tapestry: The Story of the Black, White and Multiracial Ancestors of Michelle Obama,” at the National Archives at Atlanta on Tuesday, June 26, 2012, at 6:30 p.m. Beginning in the 1800’s, the book tells the captivating story of Michelle Obama’s ancestors and their five-generation journey from slavery to the most prominent position in our nation. Clayton County will be among the first of several stops during the book signing tour for Ms. Swarns. First Lady Obama’s great-great-great grandmother was a slave on a farm in what is now considered Clayton County, Georgia, in the mid-nineteenth century.

An announcement of the book has been approved by Ms. Swarns’ publicist as follows:

Chick-fil-A to host mother-son 'Date Knight'

Chick-fil-A to host mother-son 'Date Knight'

ATLANTA -- All of the Chick-fil-A restaurants in metro Atlanta will host a special mother-son Date Knight on Saturday, Apr. 28.

The Date Knight format will be similar to that of the franchise's massively popular Daddy-Daughter Date Nights. It will give mothers and sons a special chance to enjoy some quality time together.

The event will have a medieval theme, hence the "Knight" part of its title.

"One of Chick-fil-A's goals is to promote community connections and enrich the lives of everyone we come in contact with," Robin Lomax, Chick-fil-A area marketing director, said in a statement. "We understand the importance of mother-son relationships and want to encourage local moms to come to Chick-fil-A, enjoy their sons' company over a meal and have fun."
