By the Time I got to Woodstock, an illustrated memoir.

By the Time I got to Woodstock was inspired by a visit to the Museum at Bethel Woods, the setting of the original Woodstock. The author examines who she was in 1969, What had she missed? A whole world opened up to her as she began to explore these questions—armed with paper, pen, and ink.

This highly personal trek winds through an era that still looms large in our collective consciousness. The result is a heartfelt homage to youth, pop culture, counterculture, dreams—and hope. Woodstock Nation—we need you again!



About the Author:

Sharon Watts is a writer and artist who loves to archive. She moved to Manhattan at age 18 to study fashion design, and was a fashion illustrator for the New York Times and many other clients for over three decades. Now she lives in the Hudson River Valley and pursues projects that hold special interest for her, never really knowing what they will be until they make themselves known. (Then she can be like a dog with a bone.) Her first book was Miss You, Pat: Collected Memories of NY's Bravest of the Brave, Captain Patrick J. Brown. She spins gravitas with whimsy and somehow doesn't drop too many plates. Her philosophy: "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear."
