(Revised 2nd Edition with new stories and photos) The Ivy Stays Green is a collection of short stories based on the author's experiences growing up in the south. Janet Brice Parker is a writer with heart, and she is drawn to share the things she loves. A visual artist as well as writer, her stories come alive through her perceptive eye for the telling detail. Vivid portrayal rather than overt nostalgia, will summon you to look again into your own memories. These stories are grounded in a rooted sense of place; and, with them, Janet adds her voice to the long legacy of southern writers.
