As an adult, I’ve lived in six countries on three continents. But my childhood home of Kenilworth in Washington DC is central to my writing, creativity, and understanding of cross cultural life.
In the 2000s I published a history of the Kenilworth area, which includes the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens. Download a free pdf of this grant-supported booklet:
Kenilworth: A DC Neighborhood by the Anacostia River
My white, rural parents started an Amish-Mennonite church in Black, largely low-income Kenilworth in the mid-sixties. Sound like a story? A memoir about my family’s experience is in the works.

One thought on “Global perspective, local stories”
I’m working on a picture book about Helen Fowler. I emailed your yahoo address but am not sure that’s still working. Would love to talk to you about your oral history project.
