Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A number of years ago I did a book with Lynne Cheney called A is for Abigail: An Almanac of Amazing American Women.

So many women, both nameless and well-known, worked so hard. I would be thrilled and honored to meet any one of them in order to say thanks.
