Creation of an Artist: Grant Wood’s Boyhood Story is a fascinating look into the life of well known artist Grant Wood. This insightful book is almost entirely based on Grant Wood’s own words and art. Early events were dictated to his secretary, Park Rinard, in an incomplete and therefore unpublished autobiography, Return from Bohemia. Other details were mentioned in letters Wood wrote as a ten-year-old boy, just after moving to Cedar Rapids from rural Iowa. Author Barbara Feller was the lead educator at Grant Wood’s Studio at Five Turner Alley in Cedar Rapids. Her previous book, The Road to Waubeek, focused on area artist and author Jay Sigmund.
