Sharon Feldt, our books commentator from Sulphur Springs, says two noted literary figures are scheduled to speak this fall in Northeast Texas.  Stanley Nelson, editor of the Clarion-Ledger newspaper in Ferriday, Louisiana, and the real-life figure upon whom novelist Greg Iles based his books Natchez Burning and The Bone Tree, will speak Saturday, October 8 in Winnsboro.  Nelson has written his own non-fiction book, Devils Walking.  On Wednesday, October 12, novelist Jeffrey Eaton, the author of Murder Becomes Manhattan and Murder Becomes Miami, will speak to the Silver Leos writing group at Texas A&M University-Commerce.
