Join the Dakota County Historical Society for our monthly book club, "Books From Our Shelves."  

July's book is "Finding Betty Crocker: The Secret Life of America's First Lady of Food," by Susan Marks.

"Born" in 1921 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to proud corporate parents (General Mills), Betty Crocker has grown over eight decades into one of the most successful branding campaigns. In 1945, Fortune Magazine named Betty Crocker the second most popular American woman, behind Eleanor Roosevelt, and dubbed Betty Crocker "America's First Lady of Food."
