Friday: The Great Hurricane

Yes, Joseph Pellerin has been an adjunct professor of American History, first at Angelina College and then, for the past nine years at San Jacinto College, but he is also owner of Galveston Historic Tours, so it's a good bet that his lecture on the The Great Hurricane of 1900 this Friday October 23 at Deer Park Public Library won't be some dry recitation of facts. This is someone who knows how to keep an audience's interest. We hope to see you there!

We really hope you've had a chance to take in some of the Gulf Coast Reads events we've been telling you about here, and/or joined in the discussion of Ann Weisgarber's The Promise. Below are a few snapshots of what you might have missed.

Fear not! There's still plenty to come!
