Saturday: Cypress at the Turn of the Century and Trains!

The month just flew by. It is hard to believe that Saturday's events are the last ones for Gulf Coast Reads 2015. There are only a few, but they reflect, I think, the diversity of programming that participating institutions have presented throughout the month.

At 1:00 p.m., you can get a look at Cypress, Texas before it became the hustling, bustling place it is today. The Cypress Historical Society will present Cypress at the Turn of the Century, an informative and entertaining look at a vanished world in your neck of the woods that hasn't entirely vanished at Harris County - Northwest Branch Library.

Also at 1:00 p.m. you can catch a screening of The Perfect Storm, starring George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and some frighteningly big waves at Fort Bend County - First Colony Library.

Finally, Bellaire City Library will host historian and former Texas Room librarian, Doug Weiskopf who will talk about trains and other modes of transportation at the time of the Great Storm.
