Autographed Books

Something you may not know: the Dick Smith Library owns quite a few autographed books. I've included a selection of them below, but click here if you'd like to see a more complete list.

Vigilantes to verdicts : stories from a Texas district court by Sherri Knight - Sherri Knight's books have been featured in several Dick Smith Library "Dinner in the Stacks" events.

An excerpt from the publisher's description: "From the quick dispatch of horse thieves, an overturned stagecoach driven by a drunken teamster, the trial of John Wesley Hardin to the hanging of Tom Wright, the pages of Vigilantes to Verdicts: Stories from a Texas District Court will keep you riveted to the events of the nineteenth century. Travel with frontier men and women whose stories built the judicial history of a Texas district court. Sit alongside the judges on the bench who served to bring order to a turbulent and chaotic time."

The dog of my nightmares : stories by Texas columnist Dave Lieber - Dave Lieber visited Tarleton a few years ago and spoke about Watchdog Nation, Texas, and more.

Most of the stories in this book were originally published in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Kylie Jean, football queen by Marci Peschke - This is a children's book written by an author who lives in Texas.

"Kylie Jean Carter has been waiting for three years to become a Little Dazzler--a junior cheerleader for the high school's Dancing Dazzlers--so she can cheer for her brother's high school football team."
