Old Stories are the Best Stories

Piece description from the artist

This is an old history text book that was owned by Iva Carter, a young lady from Greenville, Texas in the early 20th century. She wrote all through the book, not only class notes and reminders about assignments, but also notes to her friends in class, and very personal wishes and hopes and dreams. She wrote many versions of her (someday) wedding announcement to her prospective groom. Through her writings, I got a glimpse of her life. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to learn anything else about her, but the book is a beautiful, tattered artifact.
