Celebrating Mona

Filed in Books, Memoir, Stories, voices :: March 6, 2012



Today I went with Mona to a lunch meeting of her women’s club, the Friendly Villagers.  We were there to talk about the book we wrote together.

As the event ended, her niece leaned over to me and said, “You know, Mona has another book to write. One about her mother. She once published a newspaper on cloth because there was no paper.”


Ask for women’s histories, and they rain from the sky.
