"When I Was A Little Girl" is a semi-autobiographical work that reflects on Gale's own childhood experiences. The story is a nostalgic and tender portrayal of a young girl's life in a small Midwestern town in the United States, during the late 19th century. It captures the simplicity, innocence, and sometimes the complexities of childhood.
The author: Zona Gale (1874–1938) was an American author and playwright, known for her works that often depicted small-town life in the Midwest. Gale was the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1921. Her writing style is characterized by its vivid descriptions and the deep exploration of the character's inner lives, reflecting the social and cultural atmosphere of her time.
The illustrator: Agnes Pelton (1881–1961) was an American modernist painter known for her abstract yet representational style. Though she is primarily recognized for her contributions to modern American art, her illustrations in "When I Was A Little Girl" showcase her versatility as an artist. Pelton's illustrations for this book are noted for their delicate, evocative quality, perfectly complementing Gale's nuanced storytelling.
