NTCA Sponored Author Mollie Elkman at Coverings
Las Vegas, NV, May 3, 2022-The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) helped bring Mollie Elkman, author of the book The House That She Built to the Coverings show in early April at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Elkman, who owns Philadelphia-based GroupTwo, a marketing firm for builders, wrote The House That She Built (shebuiltbook.com) and colleague Georgia Castellano illustrated it.
The book, based on a real house in Utah that was conceived, designed and built by an all-woman team, focuses on 18 different jobs needed to build a home that girls in grades kindergarten through 2nd grade can begin to explore.
The book has spurred a movement that includes activity books, swag and collaboration with the Girl Scouts in The House That She Built Girl Scout Patch Program where scouts at every level can earn patches that encourage girls and young women to explore different careers in construction and the skills that support those careers. The program is hosted by the Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast and sponsored by Weyerhaeuser.
