The Brown Bag Book Club will meet on Wednesday, August 15, at 12:00 Noon for our discussion of
the book,  Dossie Bell is Dead, by the late local author, Jack Boone.  Mr. Boone taught in several colleges across the South and had other works published in the 1930s. This particular book is set in Henderson in the Hurst Nation area, which is located where Hardeman, Chester, and McNairy Counties meet. This area was considered lawless and the book, when it was published was looked on as somewhat scandalous since many of the characters were supposedly modeled after county residents. Join us for this discussion!
