Wow!!! So thrilled with this coverage from The Post and Mail of my mom Susie Duncan Sexton’s inclusion in Henry Ford Centennial Library’s next “Big Read” anthology
What’s In A Name?
Quote from Susie in the article: “I was fortunate to have loving parents who supported my intellectual curiosity and sense of fun. My father Roy moved here with my mother Edna from the Carolinas to run the Blue Bell plant, now a wonderful senior living facility. It is amazing how life comes full circle. Growing up in this small town in the 1950s was a very special time. I have written about it at length in my columns and books, but every memory of walking downtown and seeing movies and remembering the special families who helped build this community is treasured to me. I fancy myself a personal historian who uses the past to better understand the present, always remembering that things weren’t always as great nor as idyllic as we might remember them to be. It’s one zany ride to be this age and remember everything so clearly! I am grateful that my writing in this digital age has been able to reach a global audience. I would have never guessed that my stories about growing up in Columbia City would be of interest to people far and wide. I am grateful to this community and the people within it for the special moments they have provided which have shaped my life and point of view.”

It was at the James Dean Festival a few years back

We love you, Beth!
thanks, roy, beth and john! I love the vw exchange, too! what a mystery…actually just down the street from my house with an advertisement on it…in the front yard of the junkyard or some such thing?
Oh, how funny. And I thought it was at the James Dean festival! Apparently I just make up answers when I don’t actually know them.
oh, and I got the idea from Marilyn Monroe actually…she just looked a tad better than myself….and the vehicle may have been a caddy?
You look fabulous! love you
