Hear 100 Years of One Woman's Life
Do you ever wonder what it would be like to live 100 years and what stories you'd like to share with others if you did? Imagine all you'd witness! You can get a firsthand account of one woman's 100-years of life at the Wheat Ridge Library's Thrusday Morning Book Group this month.
Author Rosemary Rawson will discusses her book Dark Bread and Dancing – The Diaries of Sue Rawson.
Rosemary's mother, Sue, was born when Teddy Roosevelt was President. Sue lived 100 years and much of it she recorded in ordinary spiral notebooks - the minutia of her days and thoughts – the price of gas, what she thought of The Feminine Mystique and almost always what they had for supper. Her daughter has distilled them down to a charming, personal, sometimes funny portrait of a life well lived. In many ways Sue's life is unremarkable. In others it is the story of every woman who evolved through the amazing history of the 20th Century.
