A 20th-Century Memoir
by Katharine B. Coventry
(published by the author, 2007)
Born in Manhatten in 1912, author Kay Coventry’s life
has taken her from New York to Nantucket, Ohio, Georgia, and
Wisconsin before she arrived in Duluth, Minnesota, where she
has resided for the past fifty years. This is her first book.
Praise for Growing Seasons:
These wonderful memoirs tell the story of a deeply rooted
twentieth- century American life.... From her youth in Manhatten
of the Roaring Twenties, the hardships of the Great Depression,
and on through the last half of the century in Duluth, Growing
Seasons guides us through a rich life frought with events
that would have felled many another woman and addresses them
with remarkable candor, clarity, and gentle humor.
— Mara Hart, Lake Superior Writers
Written with compassion, great wit, and a keen eye for detail,
Growing Seasons allows us to experience nearly nine decades
of life as the author—and our country—lived them.
— Martha Coventry
