Barbara McBride-Smith: Stories from the Button Box

Barbara’s mother saved buttons, and for every button there was a story. Family history was passed down through the hundreds of buttons preserved in that old fruitcake box. Come hear Barbara tell a few tales that spring from that box just the way Athena sprang from the head of Zeus.

Barbara McBride-Smith: Stories from the Button Box

Orem Public Library

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Barbara’s mother saved buttons, and for every button there was a story. Family history was passed down through the hundreds of buttons preserved in that old fruitcake box. Come hear Barbara tell a few tales that spring from that box just the way Athena sprang from the head of Zeus.

Barbara McBride-Smith

Barbara McBride Smith’s life tapestry sparkles with more variety than Grandma’s button box. From Texas to Boston, Massachusetts, from the New Jersey shore, through Oklahoma, and back to Texas again, she has picked up wit, wonder, and wisdom from the most unlikely places and strings those gems of life together into a diadem of diversity. A bonafide wordsmith whose wicked wit is underscored by serious research and scholastic excellence, Barbara brings a stellar reputation for performance quality to the stage. After listening to Barbara’s interpretation of Greek myths, Bible stories, or life in general, you will want to slap your knee and shout, “What a woman!”
