Proud of East Texas: Jim Powell

As head of Brookshire's advertising, Jim Powell had been a writer for years, but it wasn't until after retirement that he wrote memories of his childhood growing up in Chandler, in the books "Feed Sack Fashions" and "Them's Funny Looking Catfish".

Powell did most of his writing at his lake house on Lake Palestine.  The lake house is filled with family and collected memorabilia, much of it from the 1940's.  Powell has also filled his yard with collections from the era such as wagons, wash pots and antique tools.  It's a perfect setting for remembering the past.

Powell will be signing copies of his books at Tyler's Barnes & Noble Bookstore September 22nd from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
