Miller Grove native Patsy Hallman, author Bill O’Neal to be featured guests

From Staff Reports

March 13, 2008 - Maybe the infamously fickle Texas weather will cooperate with the Friends of the Sulphur Springs Public Library this time around.

�We originally scheduled our annual Gala Luncheon for Friday, March 7,� said Library Director Cheryl Lawson. �Mother Nature had other ideas. Who knew we�d wake up to a snow storm that morning?�

The benefit luncheon has been rescheduled to Thursday, March 27, from 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.

�We�re pleased to announce that Patsy Hallman and Bill O�Neal have cleared their calendars to be with us, as previously planned,� Lawson said. �It�s going to be a great program and we invite everyone to attend.�

Hallman, a native of the Miller Grove community and the former dean of education at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, is the author of numerous books. O’Neal is a Texas historian, lecturer and True West Magazine’s award winner for Best Living Non-Fiction Writer, 2007.

Tickets to the catered affair are $20. Tickets which were purchased for the original gala affair and dated March 7 will be honored at the door.

For more information or to reserve tickets, call the Sulphur Springs Public Library at 903-885-4926.
