This biography on Marion Hepburn Grant, sister of Katharine Hepburn, is fabulous. It was written by Grant’s daughter, actress Katharine Houghton Grant (“Guess who’s Coming to Dinner?”) and published in 1989, three years after the death of Marion.
The book is out of print, but I found a copy on ebay. You will be able to find this book in some Connecticut libraries in Old Saybrook and perhaps at the Connecticut Historical Society in Hartford. It is a sweet tale about the sister of Katharine Hepburn as told by Hepburn’s niece, Katharine.
Among the pictures included, is one of big sister Katharine with Marion, and another of Marion and sister, Margaret (Peg). Peg was often mistaken for Katharine, you can see why.
The book entails what it was like growing up in the Hepburn household and the causes for which they all stood.
It is truly an enjoyable read, it will give you an in depth look at the real lives of the Hepburns.
See you at “The Kate.”
