Travel Back to the 1950s in Nostalgic New Autobiography from Author L.S.A. Hoyt

Share Article

The patriotic spirit of the comparatively innocent 1950s set the stage for the rebellious 1960s and ‘70s that followed. Born in 1950, the author writes of growing up in an extended family home on the fringes of a rapidly evolving small town in New York.

L.S.A. Hoyt's "Wayne Avenue Days: A Midcentury Memoir"

Although new starter homes were popping up filled by those with more liberal views, Hoyt’s part of town was behind the curve and locked in the 1940s, with older and more traditional values in place. The author transports readers to the wonderful realm of her childhood experience, bringing the characters to life with sprinkles of humor and great attention to detail.

Hoyt reflects on the lives and influences of family, friends, and ancestors that all took place in her beloved winding, wooded Wayne Avenue during those mid-century days. Tracing her dreams for the future and her fond memories of the past, the book recalls one woman’s relationships, hardships, tragedies, and triumphs, which all frame the stories of "Wayne Avenue Days".
