“Growing Up Toppsie” begins with the author’s birth, as she is born into poverty during the Great Depression and follows her trials and tribulations during her adolescent years, her early marriage, and her struggles in raising four children. After twenty years, a divorce from her tyrannical husband sets her free, and she returns to the city of her birth, enrolling at the University of Minnesota to earn a degree after her children are grown, all while working days and studying evenings.
Following her pursuit of an education, Wright successfully becomes a graphic designer and works for a publishing house where she meets her soulmate. Upon their relocation to San Diego, the two are wed, and work together to become successful publishers of educational materials called Whole Language, changing the way children learn to read.
After seventeen years and another divorce, Wright finally finds time to once again devote time to her art, both painting and sculpting, before settling down to write twenty-one children’s books. She surrounds herself with friends and family, has been on several boards, and is making substantial donations to her first love–the arts.
