Coffee with an Author

Tuesday, January 29th from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

What was it like when kids could see movies for fifteen cents, the Model-T Ford needed to be cranked up to get it started, and the whole family sat around the radio to listen to their favorite sitcoms?
These are just a few of the questions that local author Pat Pattan will answer when she visits to talk about the stories in her book, When We Were Growing Up.

It’s about life from the 1920’s to the 1960’s described in a series of interviews of people who grew up in several different states and countries. They were all asked the question, “What was it like when you were growing up?” Their personal accounts make history come alive! Illustrations by David Byrne capture the humour in the stories.
