Doris Green

Doris Green

Doris Green was born in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, to parents who grew up on farms and carried their agrarian arts and skills into their 1950s suburban neighborhood. She grew up amongst a large cohort of mostly older cousins, as well as wise-cracking uncles, and laughing aunts who gathered regularly to play cards, exchange recipes, and swap stories. Known for his reminiscences, her father was a factory worker by day, and at other times, a gardener, tinkerer, and lover of old farm equipment. Her mother, a former Western Printing worker, was a provider of books—books saved from her days at the plant, books bought for a nickel at Goodwill, and books checked out of Racine’s west-side library branch.
