I'm not sure if there is anything from Tender Buttons represented, but I've
had success listening to her recordings on
pennsound<http://writing.upenn.edu/pennsound/x/Stein.html>as well as
distributing passages of interviews from her 1934-35 tour of the
US (the latter are easily found in NYT Historical); one of these is also
recorded on the site above. I think she reflects on Tender Buttons in the
American Lectures, so you might also find a passage there that could prompt
conversation.
