Flora Rosefsky shares her thoughts on this "Hold Still" by Sally Mann:
I had heard of the photographer artist Sally Mann, so was motivated to get the latest WCAGA Book Club selection “Hold Still” by Sally Mann out of my local library to come more prepared for our November Book Club on Nov. 11th at 3pm. It was a book I couldn’t put down, with the remarkable story telling of the author’s revealing personal memoir with poignant photographs. As Mann introduces the reader in the prologue to tell us how she started this memoir, she writes “We all have them; those boxes in storage, detritus left to use by our forebearers. Mine were in the attic, and there were tons of them. Most were crumbling cardboard, held together by ancient twine….” One doesn’t have to read the Book Club selection in advance, but in this case – I’m glad I did. Thank you to Vickie Martin Conison for her continued efforts to bring about these wonderful Book Club programs and selecting such good books. WCAGA Book Club –(and Art Shares too) are great ways to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon.
