Giddings Library News Corner

The 2010 Texas Word Wrangler Book Festival is going to be big news at the Giddings Public Library on Friday, September 10, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. This is the perfect time to meet Texas authors who will be at the library with their books. They will be glad to visit with the library patrons and the public to discuss their books and also sell them. Don’t miss this opportunity to participate in this event.

One of the visiting authors will be Stephanie Milburn of Lexington. Her new book, The Chef Detective, will be one that is featured this year. This book is about a young lady who is a chef at a country club near Houston. She stumbles upon a mystery at the club which puts her life in danger.

The Personal History Of Rachael Dupree by Ann Weisgarber tells the little known story of African American pioneers.

The Church Parsons is about the Sutton-Taylor feud of Dewitt, Gonzales, Karnes, and surrounding counties. In this definitive study of the Sutton-Taylor Feud, Chuck Parsons demonstrates that the violence between the two sides was in the tradition of the family feud, similar to so many other nineteenth century American feuds.

Sins Of The Pioneers: Crimes And Scandals In A Small Texas Town by James Pylant , explores Stephenville’s emergence from wild frontier to bustling village. Studded with shocking tales— sometimes humorous, sometimes shocking—it tells of crooks, bigamists, prostitutes, saloon brawlers, and murders. Lies, Art, And Chocolate: Texas Style by Kimberly Burgess-Taylor is about Piper Bates, a hardworking and independent man who craves three things: being in love, art and gourmet chocolate. This book reveals how the best of intentions can sometimes go awry. The story begins as a conversation over lunch and chocolate at a cafĂ©’ on Austin’s trendy West Sixth Street. Along the way, you will find out that though they are born-andraised city girls, they can both “country with the best of them” as they visit a honky-tonk out in Giddings, Texas.
