The Empty Schoolhouse: Memories of One-Room Texas Schools
by Luther Bryan Clegg
Tuesday, January 22 at 6:00 pm
Luther B. Clegg's School Days: Memories of One-Room Texas Schools provides a direct link to the past through interviews with students who attended these schools and teachers who taught there. Between Fort Worth and Odessa and the Hill Country and Amarillo, former students share stories describing Friday afternoon "literary societies," dead snakes in desk drawers, pranks, fires, travel to and from school, and discipline.
