Weaving Women's Words Baltimore Stories
Naomi Kellman

We lived in a huge house in Windsor Hills, and my aunt and uncle lived upstairs. That's the place I've always called home—two acres, a tennis court, a kitchen garden, and little house for the gardener, a great place for parties. I was very privileged to live there.
