For decades, Gifford’s Ice Cream and Candy Company was a Silver Spring icon with a devoted clientele, from customers at its flagship store on Georgia Avenue to guests at the Kennedy White House. But this success masked toxic family dynamics, dark influences, and betrayals that ultimately destroyed the business and its troubled founders. Join Andrew Gifford, last heir to the Gifford company, as he discusses his book, "We All Scream: The Fall of the Gifford’s Ice Cream Empire." Gifford will be in conversation with Bethanne Patrick, writer, critic, and author, most recently, of "The Books That Changed My Life." A book signing will follow and coffee will be served, courtesy of our generous friends at Kefa Café. Sponsored by Silver Spring Library Advisory Committee, Friends of the Library Silver Spring, and Montgomery County Public Libraries.
