San Angelo resident Dr. Linda Thorsen Bond will be signing copies of her book, Saving the Oldest Town in Texas. The novel is based on Col. Benjamin Wettermark, who emptied his own bank before skipping town in 1903, leaving his wife, children, and a Nacogdoches mansion behind. The search for the former East Texas mayor turned most wanted man in America made headlines in every newspaper across the nation, as he broke not only the economy of the Oldest Town in Texas, but the hearts of his family.
Wettermark’s story is woven with a modern day tale of the restoration of a crumbling mansion. The book is published by Texas A&M Press and Stephen F. Austin State University Press. It was also featured in the Houston Chronicle. A signed copy of the novel is the perfect gift for every Texas history lover.
All of the galleries will be open and this event is FREE to attend for everyone. For more information please call 325-653-3333

Shaydee Watson is a local artist who has lived in San Angelo for 15 years. Her artwork, which she refers to as “littles,” is created in a 2 inch square canvas. These small works are filled with imagery using dots . . . the tiniest little dots, some as small as a grain of sand. Each of her pieces is an original work of art, framed, and under glass ready for their new home.
