The following book review was written by Bobbi King:
"Nana, Tell Us Your Story"
By Marie Arndt Skinner, Ric Skinner, with Marilee (Skinner) Hollister.
2013. 134 pages.
This is an homage to Marie Arndt Skinner from her two children, Ric and Marilee, the co-authors. This book is perfectly titled, as these faithfully are the "Memoirs and Musings of a Victorian Artisan in the 21st Century" as the subtitle informs us.
The three of them have put together a remarkable narrative of Mrs. Skinner’s 95 years so far on this earth.
The entire text is in her voice, just as if she’s talking to you. It appears her two children have transcribed quite a large collection of reminiscences presented in over 100 pages, requiring a lot of effort, dedication, and considerable time. The three of them have created a significant account following one person’s lifetime of events and memories.
