Meet your local gunslinging authors! 

March 21, meet John Layne, author of "The Gunslingers," a truly entertaining tale of retired marshal Joel Thornton and his daughter's mission to avenge his death in 1880's north Texas. Mr. Layne will be signing copies of his novel from noon to 3 pm.

On March 22, Sidney Thompson will read from his just-released novel, "Follow the Angels; Follow the Doves." The book is the first in a trilogy about gunslinger Bass Reeves, who comes into his own in north Texas just after the Civil War. Legend has it that Bass Reeves is the inspiration for the Lone Ranger! Dr. Thompson will be signing his novel from noon to 3 pm.

To spice things up, we will be drawing for a "Gunslinger Experience" package to be redeemed at Shoot Smart in Benbrook. Everyone coming in to for book signings will get an opportunity to be included in the drawing. We will also have characters in period costumes on hand. Get out your boots and hats and join the fun.
