The stories were interesting even though they were at least 30 years old. The story on the Baune's was the most interesting since I went to school with Tom and Ginger who were a year or two ahead of me in school. I did ask one of Ginger's sisters how the two girls were. The youngest is married with children and the older one living which is there 2nd child is in a home for handicapped children. I should say for handcapped adults.

So charming! Tearoom Ladies is a collection of interviews of everyday people in the 1980's. The subjects may consider their lives 'small' by comparison but are extraordinary all by themselves. This sampling of biostories entertains and provides the reader with wonderful life lessons along the way.

How charming! Neat to have the lives of everyday Minnesota people preserved from the eighties to 1990. The best stories are near the end, in my opinion...princess visits school children, group of friends meet by riding the bus together, the old man storyteller... Loved it.
