From Scraps of Paper to a Bestselling Memoir: A Literacy Journey that Reinvented Vivian Gibson
Vivian Gibson says she accidentally became an author in her retirement. Scraps of paper she sifted through after her mother passed away eventually became an award-winning memoir. In her memoir, The Last Children of Mill Creek, she tells about how she grew up in a segregated, but thriving community in St. Louis that no longer exists.
