Bobbie Smith Bryant: Growing Up on a West Kentucky Tobacco Farm

Kentucky author  and Calloway County native Bobbie Smith Bryant holds a talk about the social and cultural experience of life on the farm at Calloway County Public Library. Her two books are Passions of the Black Patch: Cooking & Quilting in Western Kentucky and Forty Acres & A Red Belly Ford: The Smith Family of Calloway County. She previews her talk today on Sounds Good.

"The presentation that I do is really a tribute to our farmers and, very much, our farming way of life that has provided our educations, our public buildings, so many things we maybe take for granted, but farming--in particular tobacco farming--really paid for that."

Bobbie Smith Bryant's presentation is tonight (April 24) at 6 p.m. at the Calloway County Public Library.
