Danielle Dreilinger is creating a book about home economics

patrons

Welcome! I'm a journalist with 17+ years of experience writing a book about the secret feminist history and fascinating future of home economics, to be published by W.W. Norton in 2021. Friends, it is way more than sunken corn muffins and badly sewn stuffed animals. It's an important story about women's achievements that we all need to know.

In order to create the best book* possible for all y'all, I need to put in a lot of time interviewing people, traveling around the country and digging into archives, which all takes time and money. In return for helping make that happen, you get a monthly** article with reports from the field, illuminating footnotes and other home ec stories—this is above and beyond the material for my free e-newsletter subscribers.

If you would rather make a one-time contribution, hit me up on PayPal.

Thank you for your support!

* And possibly a podcast. Thinking about it.
