Synopsis

Remembering Lionsville My Family Story by Bronwyn Bancroft

Come with me to my family's old house in Lionsville. It's full of memories. It's a special place. Uncle Pat calls it a secret place.We played in that old tin cubby, swam in the creek with the catfish, and fell asleep to the ribbip of frogs at night.And around the red cedar table we listened to the old people's stories. We learned a lot that way.Renowned artist Bronwyn Bancroft's Remembering Lionsville brings to vivid life her family's oral history and her own childhood memories.
