Warm Springs: Traces of a Childhood at FDR’s Polio Haven

Warm Springs by Susan Richards Shreve has been on my shelf for years. I believe I picked it up at Politics and Prose once with excitement because it was written by the mother of one of my elementary school classmates. It’s a wonderful story of the author’s time spent recovering from surgeries due to the polio she contracted as an infant. Her memories of her time in Warm Springs, as well as the slim amount of history about FDR was a lovely read, filled with warmth and mischief. Her references to DC places was nice as well. Highly recommend.
