Storyteller and writer Liz Warren unveils the life of her grandmother Violet M. Irving, who spent most of her life in Skull Valley, Arizona, as the postmaster and owner of the general store. Her life spanned the 20th century: she witnessed statehood, two great wars, the Depression and rural electrification first hand from her perch in Yavapai County.  This presentation will introduce listeners to the fascinating and irascible Violet through stories and pictures. Funding provided by the Friends of the Prescott Public Library. Additional funding provided by the Arizona Humanities Council.
