About the author


Sylvia Small Mitchell and Sheree Johnson Small's journey as first-time authors started with a simple conversation. The authors both experienced the fullness of growing up in Louisiana, the art of generational storytelling, and the richness of southern traditions. As sisters-in-law, they gathered on Saturday mornings, exchanged ideas about life events, and reminisced about stories told by their maternal circle. Over the years, these gatherings became a standing tradition and inspired them to put pen to paper, leaving an imprint long after they are gone. This is a generational keepsake developed for their children, grandchildren, and others to evoke conversations within the exchange of these reflective words.
