Author Alan R. Tripp married three times, but loved only one woman. First, he and his bride eloped. Then they had a formal double ceremony with the bride’s sister. Twenty-five years later, they renewed their vows. During each ceremony, Tripp stood hand-in-hand with the same beautiful woman, Maggie.
In his unconventional new biography, “A Woman with a Mind of her Own: The Delicious Adventures of Maggie, Who Lived by Her Own Rules as Daughter, Wife, Mother, Businesswoman, Professor, Author, Public Speaker…and True Feminist” (published by Archway Publishing), Tripp pays tribute to his vivacious wife of 73 years, whose take-charge attitude was second only to her giving heart.
“A Woman with a Mind of her Own” offers a series of poignant and often humorous vignettes that showcase Maggie’s free and feminist spirit. An activist during the women’s rights movement of the 1960s and ’70s, Maggie gave speeches and lectures on women’s issues, inspiring both women and men to fight for equal rights for all genders.
“This is not a conventional biography,” Tripp insists, “but a collage of true incidents, some humorous, some touching, that paint a portrait of Maggie’s unique character and style. Like a pointillist painting, the dots come together to reveal the big picture.”
Tripp’s biography shows readers other sides of Maggie’s private life, including her roles as a daughter, mother, friend and loving wife. Through his book, he hopes to inspire readers never to settle for anything less than what they know they can be - just like Maggie.
