River Town Girl

Lynn Litterine ’96

River Town Girl by Lynn Litterine ’96 is a memoir about growing up in a small, working-class town on the Hudson River, written in prose, poetry, lists, fragments, and dialogue. This patchwork creates a complex, coming-of-age story of a child of the 1950s and how she finds the strength to finally grow up. (Serving House Books, 2020)

"Both dazzlingly imaginative and comfortingly nostalgic." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
