Book signings, author reception set for Nov. 7

FORT DAVIS - Known for their unique collaboration on Authentic Texas, authors Marcia Hatfield Daudistel and Bill Wright are back by popular demand as featured guests on next Wednesday, Nov. 7, at the Jeff Davis County Library in Fort Davis.

A reception with refreshments will start the free program at 6 pm to welcome the duo at the library. Daudistel of El Paso and Wright, who divides his time between Abilene and Fort Davis, will follow with a discussion about their new books.

"Women of Smeltertown" was compiled by Marcia Daudistel to convey the lives of women who lived, integrated their culture, and raised their families in an area surrounded by the smokestacks of what was the largest industrial city on the Rio Grande.

"The Whole Damn Cheese: Maggie Smith, Border Legend" by Bill Wright tells the story of a remarkable woman who served on both sides of the border as a doctor, lawyer, midwife, herbalist, banker, self appointed Justice of the Peace, and coroner for more than 20 years.

His is the first book devoted entirely to the woman whose life in Big Bend country became legendary during the early years of the development of Big Bend National Park.

Both books were published last month and will be available for purchase and signing by the authors. The Friends of the Jeff Davis County Library invites everyone to attend.
