Conversations with My Father

AARP Books

He taught you to tie your shoes or drive the family car. When you needed braces, a new baseball mitt, or ballet slippers, he picked up the tab. His arms were your haven, and his voice delivered the wisdom of your daily life. He is your father, and you have known him a lifetime. Or have you?

For the men of the Greatest Generation, "strong silent type" was often more than a figure of speech. So you may know some of the facts, but it's likely you know little of the texture and feelings of your father’s life.

How do you get to know this man? Simple: you ask him to tell you who he is and has been. Conversations with My Father can help you do just that. This book is designed to be a keepsake, a record of dates and information about important people and events in your father's life, and a repository for photos and mementos that illustrate it. Think of it as a spark to ignite a rich and ongoing dialogue with the man you’ve been waiting your whole life to truly know.
