Harper, Irma Sweitzer, Illustrated by: Sealman, Jack E.  
Granny's Antics
Publisher: Irma Sweitzer Harper, 2009 St. Michaels, MD.
Book. Book condition: Near Fine. Spiral-bound Softcover 4to - over 9 - 12" tall This is a collection of stories told by Irma Harper to her ill grand-daughter, Megan, about growing up in Federalsburg, on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. "To blot out her suffering, I began relating the stories of my 'growing-up time'. And at each occurrence, the stories grew more familiar to her with the telling. There were special ones that she asked to be repeated often. And there were new ones just remembered, my memory triggered by some word or thought. Megan loved the theme of the stories. She imagined what it was like to have seven brothers and sisters. To grow up in a household where there was constant interchange between siblings. Between parents and those siblings. She asked questions of me. Why a certain thing occurred? Who as present when it happened? What did my parents say? What was the result of our actions? She made me recall times that I had never thought about for years. And as I held her the tears dried away and she relaxed, at peace for a while with her life. Megan loved to read and draw. In the last few months an obvious need arose. Megan became physically unable to write or be up for any extended length of time. She stopped reading her beloved books lacking strength and concentration. And so, she and I decided on a project. I would write the growing-up stories, we would read them together, and then she wold do the illustrations. And this I started. Some times, writing several stories a night, I carried the pages to her home in Royal Oak. There they were placed in a binder and read aloud at her bedside. Not only to Megan but to anyone else present. Visitors were asked to read the stories aloud. Megan often requested 'Pete Gets Pickled' and the 'The Headless Woman at the Bridge'. Using her imagination she pictured my brother, Pete, and the pickle tub - this brought a small smile through the pain and discomfort. Megan never got to do the illustrations for her time ran out. She did read (or heard them read), up through page twenty-four. I was so sorry that more stories were not written down before she died but it didn't make any real difference. Megan knew them all by heart. I know she is telling them again, to her mother and anyone who will listen in that heavenly place where there is only beauty and love. Now, I will write as many as can be remembered. Not only in Megan's memory but for all the rest of my grand-children and my great-grandchild. When they read the stories, I want them to know how I felt and what I experienced and learned in my growing-up time." vi + 82 pages. Oversized, spiral-bound softcover. NEAR FINE condition. Paper wrappers.
