Meet & Greet with Lori Stewart, author of “Grandma, Aren’t You Glad the World’s Finally in Color Today!”
November 22, 2014 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Grandma, Aren’t You Glad the World’s Finally in Color Today! is a story in rhyme that takes readers on a “then and now” journey through time. Narrated by a grandmother thumbing through an old photo album, the story compares her own mother’s life and times to those of her grandchildren today. Side-by-side vintage and full color photos contrast fashion, schools, transportation, entertainment, technology, culture and the arts from the Great Depression and World War II year to those of today. Grandchildren glimpse what life was like in their great-grandmother’s time – “Back in the day, when Brownies were cameras and photos were grey” – and rich color photos give grandparent’s color world!
Lori Stewart A timeline spanning 100 years weaves through the pages, highlighting well-known historical facts and fascinating bits of trivia. This book creates an opportunity for readers to share their own family tree, and gives grandparents a way to start conversations about who we are and where we came from, and fulfill their role as family historian.
