Publisher Comments:

"IT'S AS IF WE'VE BECOME AMERICA'S GRANDMAS."

That's how Sadie Delany described the outpouring of affection and admiration that followed the success of Having Our Say, the best-selling memoir she and her sister published in 1993. Now they offer their fans a treasury of grandmotherly good sense: memorable aphorisms, engaging anecdotes, rules for managing money, practical advice on staying active in old age, and some favorite recipes, too. It's a book filled with the secrets of living well, from two women who did it for more than a century.

About the Author

SARAH LUISE (Sadie) and ANNIE ELIZABETH (Bessie) Delany were born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina. As young women, they moved to Manhattan and became leading professionals in New York City. Bessie, a dentist, died in 1996 at the age of 104. Sadie, a New York school teacher for many years, is now 106 and continues to maintain her home and garden in a town near New York. AMY HILL HEARTH, a native of Massachusetts, won numerous awards for her work on the Delany sisters' Having Our Say. She was formerly a journalist and a regular contributor to the New York Times.
