    One thought on “Madison Women Remember: Growing Up in Wisconsin's Capital”

    1. Twelve women tell their stories about growing up in Madison during different decades of the 20th century. It's an especially interesting read if you've spent time in downtown Madison, as you'll recognize street names and landmarks that are mentioned. I had a lot of fun seeing history unfold through the eyes of these women. They tell of how their lives were affected by the war and economic difficulties that pervaded the nation, but also how normal days were like with school, friends, and celebrat [...]

    2. A nice little collection of oral histories of Madison in the early-mid 20th century. I enjoyed reading all of the women's stories and learned some great things about the city! I would have liked to see a little more racial diversity in the selection of stories, but I suppose the editor might have been hampered by the volunteers she received. I also wish each chapter was a little longer, or that more women might have been involved--I'd happily have read a collection twice this length. :)

    3. Liked reading about the various neighborhoods of Madison and getting a taste for the women's lives. Would have liked more though, some bits felt like they just skimmed over really interesting topics or experiences.

    4. I really enjoyed reading the stories of ladies who grew up where I will spend significant time soon!

    5. If you are familiar with the streets of Madison and love the city, this book will really deepen what you already feel. Very good experience.
