Stories of the Galveston Hurricane

As a library customer and resident of the Gulf Coast area, you have probably heard about Gulf Coast Reads. This year's book selection -- The Promise by Ann Weisgarber -- is particular appropriate for our area, being set just down the freeway in Galveston and featuring story of a woman who arrives on the island just before the most significant natural disaster in our area's history. Join us this Saturday, October 10, at 11 a.m. to hear the stories of some of the people who survived the 1900 hurricane from fourth generation Galveston resident Linda MacDonald, whose grandfather survived the storm and who has told his and other survivors' stories to many groups nationally and internationally.
