Here’s an announcement for all history lovers from Houston Arts & Media and Houston Metropolitan Research Center:
It’s almost Halloween, but there’s nothing scary about our fifth annual Houston History Book Fair & Symposium. In fact, it’s pure history fun, and all to be had for free. Make sure you join us between 10 AM and 4 PM on Saturday, November 8. It’s at the Julia Ideson Library Building, 550 McKinney. That’s downtown across from the City Hall Reflecting Pool. There will be Texas and Houston history authors speaking all day long. Come meet them and get a signed copy of some great history books for yourself and for Holiday gifts. There are also door prizes, plenty of great regional history conversation and other features you won’t want to miss.
One of the featured speakers is none other than Bartee Haile, who is scheduled to talk at 12:30 about his new book “Murder Most Texan.” Bartee will be available after his presentation to answer questions and to sign copies of his soon-to-be Texas true-crime classic.
