'When The Men Were Gone' Author Appears Wednesday At Greenville's Texan Theater


Pud Kearns, with Housewarmers of Greenville, discusses a "Hump Day Happy Hour" event at 5 p.m. Wednesday (May 29), when author Majorie Herrera Lewis will discuss her novel, "When the Men Were Gone."  It's the fictionized story of Tylene Wilson, who coached the football team at Daniel Baker College in Brownwood during World War II, when all of the coaches were in the military.  Lewis has revised the story so that Wilson coaches the Brownwood High School team.  Greenville High School head football coach Darren Duke and Herald-Banner sports editor David Claybourn will be on a panel with Lewis.  The event is free.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
