About the Book

Memories of a Depression Baby paints a vivid description of surviving as a kid growing up during the Great Depression. Times were hard, but kids always found a way to amuse themselves in spite of the hard reality of the times. There was very little money to spend on entertainment, so we devised our own methods of amusement. “There were no televisions, cell phones, video games, iPods, etc. Heck, we didn’t even have electric typewriters, but we thought we had it all. We just didn’t know any differently. Eventually, this generation put us on the moon and helped to invent many of the electronic wonders of today.”

About the Author

Sonja G. Farr lived every moment of the events described in the book. Times were hard, but she didn’t seem to know the difference. She was a happy-go-lucky kid in a troubled time during the Great Depression. She managed to survive due to a strong Christian upbringing in a close-knit family unit. She grew up in a large city but now lives in a small town in Texas, close to her daughter and grandchildren. She is a former bank officer and small business owner, and she is now filling her retirement years writing about past personal experiences.
