Mary Morgan SmithStoryteller Mary Morgan Smith of Pittsburgh will appear in Robert W. Rhoades Center at Clarion University-Venango Campus on Friday, February 11, at 7 p.m., as part of the campus' cultural events series. The event is free and open to the public and is sponsored in conjunction with the Venango Campus chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society.

Mary Morgan Smith has been telling stories ever since she was tricked into it as a children's librarian in Maryland in the late 1970s. She has not stopped telling stories since, and does so at every opportunity. Mary was born and raised in the Pittsburgh area.

She grew up in a family that treasured laughter, books (fairy tales being Mary's favorite) and family stories. Her stories take her listeners of all ages around the world and back in time. When she is not telling stories (and sometimes even when she is), Mary Morgan Smith produces the Three Rivers Storytelling Festival and manages the Children's/Young Adult Services Department at Northland Public Library outside Pittsburgh, Penna.
