Spring Lecture Series 2011…#3

Tuesday evening Feb.22nd found a large crowd at the library to enjoy a talk by author Joan Upton Hall. She’s a retired English teacher who turned to writing and has several books to her credit. Tuesdays talk was about her book ”Just Visitin’: Old Texas Jails”. It deals primarily with ghost stories and hauntings that are told about the old lockups around the state.The book is nicely illustrated and tells tales from over 40 jails of yesteryear. During her lecture Ms Hall related several personal experiences from her search and fielded questions from the audience. Everyone really enjoyed her talk and the refreshments and conversation that followed. This and her other books are printed by State House Press. They all looked like very ”fun reads”, so look for them at local book stores or better yet, come check one out at the library.
Next Tuesday at 6:30 we will conclude this years series with a garden talk and plant sale by Barbara Wright from the nursery in Briggs. She is always presents a good talk and usually brings quite a few various plants to sell. Come join us.
