Lorene Cary is an author, playwright, creative writing professor at UPenn, activist, mother, daughter, granddaughter, & so much more. Her latest extraordinarily moving book is Ladysitting: My Year with Nana at the End of Her Century.
From cherished memories of childhood weekends with Nana to the reality of the year she spent “ladysitting,” her stories are of their time together and five generations of their African American family. Cary captures the ruptures, love, and forgiveness that can occur in the family as she bears witness to her grandmother’s vibrant life.
