The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt
In her new book, scrapbooker, archivist and novelist (Jackie by Josie, Gatsby’s Girl) Caroline Preston creatively uses the scrapbook form to reveal the story of a spirited, ambitious heroine. Culled from the author’s personal collection of ephemera and memorabilia, The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt follows Frankie, a young aspiring writer, from 1920s Vassar to Greenwich Village to Paris, where she rents a garret apartment above Shakespeare & Company bookstore. “The vintage scrapbook is an effective vehicle for an entertaining coming-of-age story steeped in the pop culture of the Roaring Twenties. A highly enjoyable read…” – Library Journal.
