July 28—Kentucky Author Bobbie Smith Bryant will be making a stop at the Corbin Public Library next week to present “Quilting: A Legacy of Love.”

Bryant has two published books, “Forty Acres and a Red Belly Ford: the Smith Family of Calloway County” and “Passions of the Black Patch: Cooking and Quilting in Western Kentucky.”

But it’s the latter of which Bryant will base her presentation upon.

“Quilts have a way of telling stories about the people who made them,” Bryant said. “I’m looking forward to being at the Corbin Public Library, when I’ll share the story of my family’s ten-generation tobacco farm and the legacy that quilting has provided for us as Americans in the 21st Century.”

The free event will be held on Aug. 4 at 1:30 p.m. at the library.

It’s co-sponsored by the Kentucky Humanities Council and the Friends of the Corbin Public Library.

The presentation by Bryant is part of the week-long quilt show being held at the library next week as part of Nibroc.

The library will also hold a showing of the film “How to Make an American Quilt,” featuring Wynona Rider, on Aug. 6 at 4:30 p.m.
