Abstract

You are Here: Stories of People and the Places That Make Them is a series of creative non-fiction essays focusing on the writer’s grandparents and the places associated with them. Traversing across Illinois, the writer explores her grandparents’ homes along with her own and focuses particular attention on her paternal grandparents, both World War II veterans. Other sections describe important experiences and connections between the writer and her grandparents and what is left behind when one generation passes away.
