“Granny D,” a ninety-year-old in 2000, was considered a national heroine as she completed a walk from Los Angeles to Washington DC to bring attention to campaign finance reform. Her memoir, “Granny D,” compiled from her journals, was praised by supporters such as John McCain, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Moyers. Espousing “You’re never too old to raise a little hell,” she continued bipartisan election reform efforts, including a countrywide voter registration drive, before her death in 2010.
Barbara Bates Smith, noted for her Off-Broadway adaptation and performance of “Ivy Rowe” from Lee Smith’s Fair and Tender Ladies, has toured for twenty years with the works of Lee Smith—and more recently with those of Ron Rash and Allan Gurganus, as well, in her current “Civil War Cameo.”
