Jimmy Wynn at Houston Book Fair This Saturday


Heads up, everybody in the Houston area!

This coming Saturday, November 14, 2015, from 10 am to 4 pm, is the best day of the year to immerse yourself in the company of Houston authors and their varied historical books on the people and major events that have shaped the heart and face of this community.

Presented by the Houston Arts & Media (HAM) and the Houston Metropolitan Research Center, the Houston History Book Fair & Symposium takes place at the historic Julia Ideson Building at 55o McKinney Street. For further highlighting on the event itself, please click the following link and check out all that’s been planned for this wonderful event by HAM Director Mike Vance and his hard working creative army of Houston Arts & Media (HAM) members and volunteers. If you have any interest in any aspect of Houston history at all, this is a moment in time you do not want to miss, especially on the first weekend that feels like autumn in Southeast Texas:


The Pecan Park Eagle wishes to issue this special invitation to all fans of baseball, Jimmy Wynn, and the Houston Colt .45s/Astros. One of the most iconic names in Houston baseball history, the one and only Jimmy Wynn. will be there to speak, converse with fans, and sign your personal copies of  “Toy Cannon”, the story of his life in baseball – and a book that he and I wrote together. A limited number of copies will be available for sale on Saturday. Your best chance of acquiring a copy, however, are to come early. Jimmy Wynn will also speak for a half hour at 11:30 AM, following a brief introduction by your truly.

Drop by and say hello at our table this coming Saturday. Jimmy Wynn and I both would love to meet you.

And one more thing – as Mike Vance has just importantly reminded me – … “IT’S FREE! ~ ABSOLUTELY FREE!
