A Writer’s Beginning
Written by Idella Bodie
Through the years, Idella Bodie has visited many schools to speak with young
readers about her books and one of the most popular questions she receives is
“What was your life like when you were growing up?” To show “the way things
were,” she has gathered memories, not just of her life but the lives of people
in her small South Carolina hometown of Ridge Spring.
More than a memoir of the author’s coming of age, Carolina Girl, A Writer's Beginning is a blend of history and often painful self-discovery that offers young readers insight and courage in dealing with their own problems.
