My Favorite Grandmother
My Favorite Grandmother is an ongoing project.
Part one is a medium through which anyone can share stories about or told by grandparents. I engage with passersby teaching them to knit while listening to their stories. This moving collection of narratives and anecdotes can be found on the My Favorite Grandmother blog, a forum to visit, read, comment, and connect through storytelling.
Your Story is welcomed and appreciated. Please contact me with your submission.
Part two is my related performance; I’ll Draw a Line, inspired in part by my grandmother’s stories of wartime recession when women drew lines down the backs of their legs to imitate the stockings they could not afford.
