 DR. DOROTHY HEIGHT LAUNCHES 'BLACK FAMILY REUNION COOKBOOK'
 AT TWO NORDSTROM STORES
 SEATTLE, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of Black History Month, Dr. Dorothy Height, president and chief executive officer of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW), will introduce "The Black Family Reunion Cookbook" at two Puget Sound-area Nordstrom stores, Nordstrom said today. The cookbook, $12.95, will be sold throughout the year at select Nordstrom stores around the country in a campaign to raise $50,000 for NCNW.
 Height will greet customers and autograph copies of the cookbook at Nordstrom, Tacoma Mall, Friday, Feb. 28, from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m. in Gift Gallery on floor two. She will also make an appearance at Nordstrom, Downtown Seattle, on Saturday, Feb. 29, from noon until 1:30 p.m. in Gift Gallery, metro level. Guests can also sample the book's renowned recipe for sweet potato pie.
 President since 1957, Height leads a coalition of 33 national organizations and 150 community-based sections representing four million women in America. She is the inspiration behind the Black Family Reunion celebrations which, over the past several years, have gained national notoriety and attracted over six million attendees.
 "The Black Family Reunion Cookbook" combines delicious recipes, historical and cultural notes, and personal memories contributed by prominent African-Americans past and present. The book also reflects a century's worth of living, working and growing in the African- American community.
