Katherine Snow Smith | 'Rules for the Southern Rule Breaker' (online)
This is a virtual event.
With an introduction by her dad, longtime News & Observer columnist, A.C. Snow; in conversation with Katherine Poole, of Walter magazine.
Without meaning to defy society's guidelines for parenting, marriage, work and friendship, Smith continually finds herself off the expected path--whether that means falling on President Barack Obama, camped with her teenage daughter at a raucous music festival, or ending a twenty-four-year marriage because she simply can't "muddle through." Here, she shines a spotlight on the humor and humanity that come with sometimes breaking the rules.
Katherine Snow Smith has lived throughout the South as a newspaper reporter, magazine editor, public relations executive, daughter, sister, mother, wife, divorcee, and friend. She graduated from UNC.
Southern women are inundated with rules starting early--from always wearing sensible shoes to never talking about death to the dying, and certainly not relying on song lyrics for marriage therapy.
