New Book Release: Bright Yellow by Barb Svedahl

Please join me in congratulating Barbara Svedahl on the publication of her memoir, Bright Yellow! I offered Barb some very early assistance as she set out to share the wit and wisdom she has collected from her mother and many others throughout her life. Here's the book description:

"I was five on that day in 1948 when Mother pulled out the map of Minnesota, closed her eyes, and placed a finger randomly." So begins the life story held within Bright Yellow on the day that the author's mother left her father and moved them to Minnesota. From her mother's days as a home economist for Northern States Power to her work with Therapy Dogs International, her drive--and friendship--inspired and influenced those around her, including her daughter. Eventually, Barb started searching for her own answers to help her explain some of life's coincidences. The more she learned, the more she realized that the people who come and go from our lives all have stories to tell--and teach. Barb's own stories (and her mother's) form the basis for this memoir of life as the daughter of a single mother. Liberally sprinkled with details of life in Minnesota during the last seven decades, Bright Yellow is one woman's story of life's joys--and hardships--brought to the page with honesty and passion.

Bright Yellow is available now in print format on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
