Lee Smith: 2005

Lecture, 2005
Lee Smith

    As a bonus track, we went back to Lee’s talk from the 2005 Seminar on Humor. Smith’s tale of her high school English class re-enactment of Huckleberry Finn and Jim’s journey down the Mississippi (in a raft of their own construction which they built in a lumber yard in Paducah, Kentucky) and became outlaws, folk heroes and local media celebrities is astonishing, absurd, inspiring and altogether delightful.

      Loved this talk. I’m a Lee Smith fan from way back.

      In the introductory text, the name of the city in Kentucky should be spelled PADUCAH.
