About the Author

The Senior Circus Works consists of a group of nearly forty writers in their 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. They live in two different communities in Northern California, and, to create Under the Big Top, they joined efforts to tackle the sometimes overwhelming task of rating, screening and organizing over 150 stories and poems. With the help of ther instructor/editor, Senior Circus Works pooled their energies to make Under the Big Top a reality. Now, two years later, the group submits this work with a good deal of pride knowing that they bring the variety, diversity and equality of the last 100 years in America.

Under the Big Top has become a monument of and for Senior Circus Works, a group of "oldsters," that managed to work together, to stay focused and still speak to one another while writing, revising, correcting and writing to make personal histories available to all who will share their stories.

This is how we lived; this how a future is built; this is the real nature of history.
