Grandfathers are family treasures. Here, in more than forty reminiscences, poems, photos, and recipes, we all get to sit on the porch and listen to their wise voices. Nikki Giovanni has brought together writers of many ages, races, and backgrounds. They tell us of their grandfathers: slaves and Confederate soldiers, homesteaders and railroad men, Sons of the Revolution and new immigrants.
Grand Fathers is a warm and welcoming collection that honors all of our families, in love and in pain, so that we all feel what loving relationships can be.
