Author to give presentation on quilting’s impact

The McCracken County Public Library, with co-sponsor the Kentucky Humanities Council, will host a free presentation paying tribute to Kentucky’s quilters at 7 p.m. on Thursday. 

“Quilting: A Legacy of Love,” will be presented by Kentucky author Bobbie Smith Bryant, who wrote “Passions of the Black Patch: Cooking and Quilting in Western Kentucky.”

Adult Services Librarian Bobbie Wrinkle says attendees will get an overview of quilting as a craft and learn about the impact quilting has had on women in America. Wrinkle says folks will learn “how the simple act of making something beautiful from scraps gave women a voice in the days when they had little or none.”
