Madison Women Remember follows the stories of twelve different women growing up in twelve different neighborhoods of Madison from the early 1940s to the mid 1970s.
Author Sarah White penned this book in celebration of the sesquicentennial of the city of Madison. White wanted to share something special with her community. She says, “…a collection of oral history interviews reveal the changing nature of Madison over time.” She said her new book is a great way to celebrate 150 years.
In addition to the twelve stories, various family and vintage photographs can be found within the pages. The females interviewed for the book represent a wide cross-section of economic and ethnic groups found in Madison both then and now.
