"Before There Was Me"
As a tie-in to this year’s featured book, we are compiling a gallery of photos building on the book’s theme about where we come from, and especially how those before us made their way.
We hope you will share photos of your own parents and relatives from before you were born, or when you were very young. Feel free to include the person’s profession and their relationship to you, first names, place, and/or the year—as little or as much info as you like—that we can include as a caption.
