A Tree Grows in BrooklynHilary!
On February 28, 1945, the film A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (directed by Elia Kazan) opened in US theaters. The novel, by Betty Smith, was published two years earlier. It's a coming-of-age story about a girl living with her impoverished family Williamsburg, Brooklyn in the early 1900s.
I've never read it or seen it. Have you?

What is History With Hilary?
Every day, I take a self-portrait based on that day in history! The plan is to eventually make a book and/or calendar!
Select prints from my History With Hilary are for sale. Proceeds help to support the project, which is getting a little pricey! View them at Etsy!
I'm also accepting donations, including costumes, wigs, fabric, and props! Please email me at email@example.com.
