Last night was “one for the History books” with the first Book Review of 2013.
Last night, the Lakewood Library Friends welcomed Mark Doty to a large, crowd eager for Dallas details. Doty’s Lost Dallas documents more than 200 buildings and neighborhoods built and developed in Dallas over the past 170 years, many of which no longer exist.
Doty’s not a native Dallasite, as evidenced by his reference to the Dr Pepper slogan as “Two, Four & Ten” (everyone from north Texas KNOWS the slogan reads “Ten, Two & Four”). Despite this verbal misstep, his presentation and talk was warmly received by the overflowing crowd. Mr. Doty lives here in Dallas.
A book signing and sale followed. Proceeds from book sales benefit the City of Dallas Municipal Archives.
