Authors, editors of East Texas book at History Center

The History Center and the Diboll Historical Society will host a program and book-signing in Diboll on Wednesday, April 10. Authors and editors Dan Utley and Milton Jordan will be at The History Center promoting their newest book, “Just Between Us: Stories and Memories from the Texas Pines,” published recently by Stephen F. Austin State University Press.

The coffee table-sized hardback book of 200 pages features the writings of some of East Texas’ best authors, including William Seale, Francis E. “Ab” Abernethy, Archie P. McDonald, Thad Sitton, Richard Donovan, Al Vinson, and Light T. Cummins. More than three dozen stories are vividly told, each adeptly portraying East Texas’ unique sense of place and heritage.

The come-and-go book signing will be from 5 to 6:30 p.m., and the attractive hard cover books will be available for purchase for $35 each, which includes tax, and should make great gifts for anyone living in East Texas or anyone interested in folklore and Texas history. Light refreshments will be available. Additionally, at 4 p.m., Utley and Jordan will address the members of the Diboll Historical Society during their regular April meeting. Everyone is invited to both events. The History Center is located at 102 N. Temple in Diboll.
