Author Marilyn Gidcumb Konstanty

When Marilyn Gidcumb Konstanty decided to put her memories of growing up in Butler County on the written page, she waivered between making it a work of fiction or a straight-forward memoir.  Luckily for her readers, she went with memoir.  Her book MAKING A LIVING: A MEMOIR OF A RURAL KENTUCKY GIRL, tracks her life in rural Butler County from 1950 (her birth) to 1968 (her graduation from high school), with revisits from 2014 to 2018.  It is an honest look at the daily struggles farm families of that time faced.
