Growing Up in the Nationas Capital, invites the reader to spend some time with Carrolyn Pichet as she tells the stories of her childhood growing up in Washington, D.C., in the 1940s. Growing from her recollections of the caring and distinctive people who lived around her and creating a village in the midst of the city, this memoir does not tie itself down with exhaustively documented research. Instead, it liberates the members of the community to come to life through the stories that make up its account of the authoras early years.
