ANNE'S BOOKS

To Get To Here,
A Journey Through My Childhood, 1953-1963 
Anne Boykin

ISBN 9798868344336

After 31 years and much wailing and gnashing of teeth, “To Get to Here, A Journey Through My Childhood, 1953-1963” has been uploaded and approved. This is the story of Anne's growing up years in College Station, Texas, New Mexico and California. The stories are mostly the observations of a young girl as she sat back and observed the goings on of family, friends and adults in her life. It's a poignant coming of age book that will bring a lot of laughter and a few tears to the reader. The Appendices are full of many of Anne's essays, historical newsletters, and family obituaries she has written. Her own fill in the date obituary is also included. And, not to be morbid, the book is intended for the reader to color in the chapter titles and color in the photographs. So, for all of the kids at heart, grab your gel pens and have fun! Add the mustaches, beards and crazy hats. Be a kid again!

 

 

The book will be available for sale on Amazon by December 1, 2023. The Appendices are almost as meaty as the stories. 363 pages, hardcover, 8.25” x 11”, 100s of photos. $37
