Monday Memories is a weekly feature hosted by Miss Print and the Book Bandit. Just take a photo of a book from your personal library (or a library book that’s significant to you, etc.) and talk about why it matters. Is it your first ever signed book? The first book you reviewed on your blog? Whatever it is, write it up in a Monday Memories post and share it.
This is one of those books that you feel like maybe you shouldn't be reading, but yet you can't help yourself. It is one of the most bizarre, engrossing, sad, stories that I have ever read. To top it all of Dare Wright is a real person. Dare was a famous artist. Her life story is one of a desperate search for someone to love her, a love she never found. Her relationship with her mother is one of the strangest I have ever read about. She had a love for dolls and bears and put most of her love into them. I love to read about people. This is a story that you will never forget about a woman that you will never forget. One of my favorite autobiographies.
Dare Wright was the author of these books that have beautiful pictures but were very controversial in the time they were written.
She also wrote the Look Series. Her most popular stories are those of Edith.
Dare Wright is so fascinating. You can find out more about her here:
Dare Wright was ahead of her time. I'm sure if her books were written now, she would be world renowned. Her photography is beautiful and she should not be forgotten.
