ANGIE’S SMORGASBORD: Short stories and poems written by my dear, sweet mother-in-law




??????????????????????????????? Angie Brown (1917-2017) was a great-great grandmother from upstate New York, last living in East Tennessee. Quite some time ago she developed an interest in writing, and over the succeeding years she has written dozens of stories, some of which were published in her local newspaper. Many of these stories depict observations and experiences she had from childhood to about 2010. Others are fictional short stories. They are about a wide range of topics; hence “smorgasbord” in the title. Hopefully, you will find something here that will be of interest to you, and that you enjoy reading her stories as much as she enjoyed writing them.
