Growing Up
No matter when or where we grow up, the stories, people, and places that populate our memories leave an indelible mark on the manuscript that becomes our life story. In Growing Up, hear the stories that stuck with locals over the last century told by the very people who lived through them. Ranging from joyous to humdrum, and even to grim, these childhood memories offer a glimpse of life in still frame, from the start of the twentieth century to the present day. With new and vintage photographs to accompany the essays, local authors take readers on a journey through ten decades of coming-of-age in their cities.
