Anita Alexandra,
I just ordered it on Amazon - it sounds really wonderful - my kind of book. Congratulations!

Anita Hi Alexandra,
I'd be happy to read your memoir. I have very fond memories of Bard, how lovely to grow up close by. Best of luck! Anita


Alexandra Aldrich Hi Anita, I am a fellow Bard alum! Just sending off a copy of my new memoir, The Astor Orphan, to Leon for the Bard collection. I hope you will consider reading/rating my memoir- about growing up at Rokeby just a few miles south of Bard. No pressure. Thanks, Alexandra
