Historical Fiction

The Dear America series, written for grades 5-9, is very popular with grade school children. Many of the diaries in the series date back to 1620 … 1777 … 1859 … 1864 … etc. But nothing prepared me for the discovery of one written about my generation. I am now HISTORICAL fiction!!!
“Where Have All The Flowers Gone? The Diary of Molly MacKenzie Flaherty” focuses on the time period between Christmas 1967 through May 1968. It is a time of war in Vietnam, unrest in the United States: hippies; demonstrations; the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert Kennedy etc.
Suddenly I’m feeling very old!
