The Sherman Historical Society invites you to attend a book launch event for Reflections, its newly published book, on Saturday, October 8th, at the Sherman Playhouse. After a presentation by the Society and our book’s authors at 2pm, a book signing will follow until 4pm. Refreshments will be served.
This book was a collaborative effort that grew out of several members sitting around talking of their childhood memories at a time when a number of influential artists and writers had taken up residence in Sherman. It became clear that these ordinary recollections of “just” friends and neighbors were anything but. The Society—through curator Gloria Thorne and Ginny Zellner—formally coordinated this gathering of ten to write their stories of these people. To put it in context, these authors needed to write their own—and what an additional treasure trove of discovery that was!
Join the Historical Society to learn more about Reflections of Sherman’s past—and enduring—creative side of history. Just as Sentinel Houses & Barns gave the rich history of the homes and properties of Sherman, Reflections offers intimate portraits of some talents who lived here.
The book will sell for $25. At the event, payment will only be by check or cash. The book will also be available at The Old Store, where credit cards are accepted. All proceeds support the Society’s programming and properties, as we are a volunteer-based non-profit organization.
