The Bookshelf, The Parlor, The Young Texas Reader, and the Monthly

The Texas Bookshelf is different from the The Texas Parlor, http://texasparlor.blogspot.com/ . The Texas Parlor carries "general" bookish information and non-book information and even different Texana news and notes of use to the bibliographically challenged and other nosey folks intersted in historical, literary, and cultural observations. Will's Texana Monthly may carry material from either blog, but extends itself beyond those, especially for longer compilations or treatments. The Monthly, the Bookshelf and the Parlor are all companions. So, is the Young Texas Reader http://youngtexasreader.blogspot.com/ which specialized on books and such things for the youngest to the teenagers.

"Former broadcaster, public relations official and media relations director turned author, Jerome Davis, will return to Marshall Thursday for two appearances.
He will first address the Marshall Rotary Club at its noon luncheon while capping off the day as a guest of Friends of a Library where he will appear at a book signing while also visiting with the public. The event is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Gold Room of the Marshall Public Library.
"Midian, Marshall & Me," a historical novel released in March, is the title of Davis' first work that is described on the Trafford.com Web site, the book's publisher, as "a book (that) relates the history of Marshall, Texas, its role in the nation's civil rights movement, and the survival of a friendship between a white boy and a black boy during the turbulent years after Brown vs. Board of Education."
"I grew up not understanding why people thought the way they thought," Davis said ...."
