  Curled Up With a Good Book
*Up the Hill to Home* by Jennifer Bort Yacovissi
Jennifer Bort Yacovissi's
Up the Hill to Home
Jennifer Bort Yacovissi on the genesis of Up the Hill to Home:
I first read my grandmother Lillie’s diary when I was about 12 or 13 years old, and was smitten with its lovely, natural story arc. It took me more than 30 years to get serious about writing the whole story, at which point I found that I had far more source material than I ever imagined.

Read the full interview with Up the Hill to Home author Jennifer Bort Yacovissi.
