I have always loved history! My favorite class in college, and then art history was my favorite class in art school! There's something magically about knowing how things were before us, where we come from and how things came to be. I feel immense respect for our past as humanity. I also love to read stories and books about how things were back in the day. When I worked as a producer, I was involved in a project where old "grandparents" did real life story-telling to children in their communities, to commemorate the 100 years of the Republic of Panama, Central America, where I was born. Telling the story through those who lived it. Now I am lucky to have a book written by my grandmother about how life was back in the day when she was young, in Dare County North Carolina - USA. I fell in love with it when I found the typed pages in a yellow envelop stuck in a drawer (since the year I was born). I told her we should publish it and we did a hardcover deluxe edition for family and friends a couple of years ago. We are currently launching a paperback edition and soon an ebook so we can share it with more people (plus its easier and cheaper to distribute on online stores). It's really a beautiful book, not that I am biased. I'm really proud of her and her book and I do think it's a charming book.
