Lolette Kuby became a Jew at birth. She became a liberal/progressive as she outthought the dogmas of her communist childhood household. She became a feminist when the Second Wave took hold, as a plenary member of NOW in Cleveland, Ohio. Starting in elementary school, she wrote—poems, articles, stories—with the most recent of six books, Out of Cleveland, a collection of short stories, published in 2008 by Vehicule Press. Before her move to Canada, she taught at the Cleveland State University, and now does freelance editing. She is a member of PEN America. Samuel was her first grandchild. Now there are four others.
