Irene Stearns is a Kalamazoo Gal. She's a lifelong Kalamazoo resident who worked as a guitar string maker for Gibson during WWII. But more than that, she personifies "the band of intrepid, unpretentious, stunningly skillful, thoroughly American women" about whom Jonathan Kellerman wrote in the foreword to John Thomas's "Kalamazoo Gals: A Story of Extraordinary Women and Gibson's WWII 'Banner' Guitars." Irene Stearns will be on hand for a meet and greet and Kalamazoo Gals book autographing at the Kalamazoo Gals vendor booth on the first floor of the Kalamazoo Valley Museum.
