Storytelling in Greeley, CO

Karen Barton, a professor at the University of Northern Colorado, interviewed her mother, Phyllis Hoodak while Phyllis was visiting town. Phyllis grew up in Brooklyn. She described herself as a “devilish child,” yet looked “prim and proper.” Her perfect childhood day was a trip to Coney Island complete with a ride on the Merry-Go-Round, knishes, popcorn, and a Nathan’s hotdog.
