Description of Pictures: Lorene Cary -- Only the second memoir from Black Ice author Lorene Cary, Ladysitting is a piece of the larger history of African American migration, and makes sure that a black woman's death adds meaning to her life. It is an elegy to a people, a community, a family, and two notable women.
Latest Title: Ladysitting: My Year with Nana at the End of Her Century
Reviewers hailed Lorene Cary’s scholarship-girl memoir, “Black Ice,” as “brutally honest” and “stunning.” Her first novel, “The Price of a Child,” fictionalized the story of a female fugitive from slavery, and was selected as the inaugural choice of One Book, One Philadelphia. Other works include a girlfriend novel, “Pride;” “FREE! Great Escapes from Slavery on the Underground Railroad,” for young readers; and “If Sons, Then Heirs,” a family saga with love, land, and lynching at its center. “Ladysitting: My Year with Nana at the End of Her Century,” has already been described as brilliant, funny, sensitive, and complex.
Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
