A Simple Gift

By Nancy Ruth Patterson

Family, Special Event | November 10

Roanoke educator Nancy Ruth Patterson’s delightful story is about 10-year-old Carrie O’Connor, who wants to be an actress. After starring in her class play at her New York City school, she convinces her parents to let her audition for a theater in North Carolina that is doing a play based on a book written by her mother! A plucky audition gets Carrie in the cast, but before opening night she makes a blunder so big it threatens to topple the whole production. Then everyone learns about making amends for mistakes. Join the MMT Family in a special tribute to Nancy Ruth Patterson’s career-long creativity and devotion to our community.
