Spotlight: Alumni Author Series

Becky Blue (1981)

Alumni author spotlight: Becky Blue (1981).  When Becky’s mother-in-law, Barbara Blue, moved into a house near Augustana in the 1960s, she wrote recipes on white tiles and hung them in her kitchen.  In Made With Words: Stories and Recipes from a Kitchen Wall, Becky shares some of these recipes, along with Barbara’s stories of the friends and family members who have cooked and enjoyed the dishes over the years.  The book was a true family affair: Becky’s husband, Dan (1981), and son, Elliot (2016), carefully removed the tiles before the house was torn down, and Becky’s daughter, Julia (2014), photographed the tiles for the book.  Follow Becky’s blog at and find her book at the library!
