My Grandmother's Memoir: reflections on four generations and the recipes that brought them to the table
Cynthia Huijgens is a 2017 graduate of Simon Fraser University's creative writing program, The Writer's Studio Online. My Grandmother's Memoir is her first creative nonfiction publication. Her short story "The Things We Do For Love" appears in The Circle, A Brussels Anthology, and an excerpt of her first novel for upper middle grade readers, Inside the Cabinet of Curiosities, appears in Emerge 17, a Simon Fraser University anthology.
When my grandmother Virginia Stroud Grafton died in December 2014, she left behind a three ring binder full of family stories, photographs dating back more than a hundred years, and a hand written cookbook with recipes that had been passed down from mother to daughter, aunt to niece. My Grandmother's Memoir combines all of these elements with an interview conducted with Ginny in 2005 and stories from people who knew Ginny - schoolmates, her children and grandchildren, friends and acquaintances. My Grandmother's Memoir is a nostalgic recollection on four generations on one southern California family and a cookbook for anyone wishing to relive recipes from their childhood.
Anyone interested in history who is looking for a walk down memory lane, stretching back to the 1910s southern California. This book will appeal to people with an interest in genealogy and an example of how to record their own family history and memorialise it for future generations. Family and friends of Virginia Stroud Grafton. Adults, older children, southern California residents.
