This morning I made a light proclamation to my daughter, Emma when I said, “Your Great Great Grandpa was Canadian.”
She didn’t find that very funny.
Emma is taking AP World History this year and one of her first assignments is to research where her family roots began. We’re thinking nineteenth century here. Most of her classmates have roots in Europe or Central or South American during that time, but my little Emma’s roots stretch across the United States in that time.
My family of choice goes beyond blood. My family of choice flows words and images as blood. My literary Grandma’s and Aunties, My Artist Cousins and Sisters, these women so many people haven’t heard of yet.
In honor of the spirit of “FLASH” today, I am going to leave you with images of these women and request you visit the links I will leave from my “Women in Literary History from A to Z” series from last Spring.
