Writing is all in the family

Phyllis Greene is the mother of Bob Greene, former Chicago columnist and author of a zillion books that I love ("Be True to Your School," "When We Get to Surf City," "And You Know You Should Be Glad,") despite the fact that his overly nostalgic style can be grating.

Now Phyllis Greene, 90 and in hospice care, has an elegantly written blog of her own. I read her book about losing Bob's dad, "It Must Have Been Moonglow," and you can see that writing runs in their family.
