When you read, you experience life's happenings through the eyes of someone other than yourself.
Stanley Nelson, author of DEVILS WALKING and Pulitzer Prize finalist, will be at Winnsboro Center for the Arts Saturday, October 8, at 10:30. The event is free. No ticket necessary. We expect a full house. Stanley will speak about the research he's done during the past decade into the Silver Dollar group, the violent spinoff of the Klu Klux Klan.
He will autograph copies, which are supposed to be available at Winnsboro Emporium a couple of weeks before the event. He will also take questions from the audience.
Although the subject matter is unsettling, it is imperative that we not forget the victims who died at the hands of evil.
Once again this year, in conjunction with the Winnsboro Fine Art Market, Winnsboro Center for the Arts hosted an Authors’ Showcase, featuring a bevy of East Texas talent.
"We love the Winnsboro Fine Art Market and having an author event is a natural partnership," says event organizer, Maryann Miller. "
