OGDEN, Utah – Barry Williams, better known as Greg Brady from the 1970s hit TV show "The Brady Bunch," will speak in the Shepherd Union Ballroom at Weber State University at noon Jan. 20.
Williams, author of the book "Growing Up Brady: I Was a Teenage Greg," will discuss what it was like to be a teen idol during the 1970s. His presentation will offer current students, most of whom were born after 1980, insight into the decade that produced the Watergate scandal, the energy crisis and the ubiquitous "Have A Nice Day" smiley face. "The Brady Bunch" sitcom has remained a lasting cultural icon of the 1970s, continuing to attract new audiences through syndicated reruns more than 30 years after its original run ended on ABC-TV (1969-1974).
The event is being held in conjunction with the athletic department's "Turn Back the Clock Night," (Jan. 22) – a celebration of WSU's 1979-80 men's basketball team. Williams will be participating in activities at the WSU men's basketball game on Jan. 20. Williams' appearance is part of WSU's Convocations series and is free to the public.
Those wishing to attend are encouraged to park at the Dee Events Center and ride the Wildcat Express shuttles to campus.
