Paper Lions: George Plimpton, my mom, and me

Thanks to Deb Lowrance of Columbia City’s Peabody Public Library for finding this article and sending it to me. I love the movie reference and the photo of little me with author and raconteur George Plimpton, but I adore what they say about my mom Susie Duncan Sexton even more!

  1. I wonder how many little kids can say they spent time with…George Plimpton, the paper lion? this was a high point in our lives…indeed it was! and what a neat post and mail article! I still have the original somewhere…for sure!

    • I was very fortunate to have such a magical childhood and to have parents to encouraged me and presented so many clever and interesting and expansive opportunities. Thanks for making special things like this happen! love you
