Bell County Museum to Host Book Signing on Governors Ferguson
Saturday, March 1, 2014
Book signing for Carol O’Keefe Wilson’s new book, In the Governor’s Shadow: The True Story of Ma and Pa Ferguson.
Bell County Museum will host a book signing on Saturday, March 1
at 2:00 p.m. for Carol O’Keefe Wilson’s new book
, In the Governor’s Shadow: The True Story of Ma and Pa Ferguson
. Published by University of North Texas Press, the book examines anew the complex story of two Bell Countians who rose to the rank of governor in the early 20
century. Bell County Museum is proud to be the home of the Ferguson Collection.
Carol O’Keefe Wilson is a 1987 graduate of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, a Texas CPA, and a retired Certified Fraud Examiner. In 2010 her community’s efforts to save the Ferguson’s Temple home ignited an interest in the subject, which led to this extensive study of the governors. For her book, Wilson gathered and dissected financial statements, documents in evidence, trial testimony, newspaper accounts, and other source material to weave a tale of intrigue that contradicts the ideals of the Progressive Era.
The March 1 event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. In the Governor’s Shadow sells for $29.95 plus tax; museum members receive a 10% discount. For more information, please contact Stephanie Turnham at 254.933.5243
