Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A self-published, hard-cover memoir written by Madeleine Tress of San Francisco entitled Rainbows on my Ceiling, 2006. The memoirs "were written as an extended conversation with Jan Sibley, [Madeleine's] partner in love and life for 40 years."
"The memoir encompasses Madeleine's early childhood in New York and Jan's in Alaska; the paths they both took before they met, and the adventures they shared throughout the years. Jan taught in a ghetto school and Madeleine became an attorney. They traveled the world together and started a business in San Francisco. They became part of the gay community of that city and lived through the AIDS crisis. The memoir recalls those years, and the fascinating people they met along the way."
