A retired school teacher, the author grew up on St. Paul's West Side and lived and taught nearby. Her family story included so many West Siders that when she had her book signing at a local coffee shop, 250 people showed up. As a teacher of writing, her book tells a lively story of her family and the history of the West Side. Lots of photos.
