The Grannie Annie's 17th Annual Collection, 2021/2022


The thirteen stories in The Grannie Annie’s seventeenth collection, represent the 128 submissions received this year from young authors in four U.S. states. The published stories took place in four countries on three continents (and in Oceania) over a span of more than 100 years. Some stories relate a family member’s involvement in historic events. Others vividly depict memorable experiences from times past. The stories entertain, educate, and inspire us, reminding us of the resilience of the human spirit.

Our volunteer readers chose these stories with you and your family in mind, yet you may want to preview the stories before sharing them with young or sensitive readers.

We’re so pleased that you’ve joined us! We encourage you to discover and preserve some stories from your own family’s history. And we hope that you’ll join us again next year for The Grannie Annie Family Story Celebration.

Connie McIntyre and Fran Hamilton, Directors of The Grannie Annie
