'Penny Loafers & Bobby Pins' Authors at the Fox Cities Book Festival

The four Sanvidge sisters and authors of Penny Loafers & Bobby Pins: Tales and Tips from Growing Up in the '50s and '60s will give a presentation as a part of the fourth annual Fox Cities Book Festival. The authors will also be available to sign books.

In "Penny Loafers & Bobby Pins," the four Sanvidge sisters, whose birth dates span the Baby Boomer period, present a lively chronicle of growing up in the 1950s and '60s in a small Midwestern town. Each sister writes about the facets of her childhood she remembers best, and their lighthearted stories are illustrated with period photos. Sprinkled with mentions of pedal pushers, home permanents, and "two-tone" cars; early TV shows and the first rock and roll; hula hoops, Tiny Tears, and Mr. Potato Head (played with a real potato); and memories of their grandparents who lived nearby, "Penny Loafers & Bobby Pins" also features "how-tos" for re-creating the fads, foods, crafts and games the Sanvidge sisters recall in their stories.
