Monday, Nov 20th 6:30 – 8:00.  ‘Dallas County’ book signing and talk with Iowa author Darcy Maulsby

 If you love local history, join us at Artisan Gallery 218 as Iowa author Darcy Maulsby shares stories of the infamous events and everyday people that made Dallas County what it is today.  No Iowa county has influenced American history more than Dallas County, with its rich heritage of small-town living, farming, coal mining, and the immigrant experience, serving as a crossroads for settlers heading west during the California Gold Rush and slaves escaping via the Underground Railroad. 

 Darcy Dougherty Maulsby is a former Granger-area resident and the author of three books on Iowa history:  Dallas County, The Culinary History of Iowa:  Sweet Corn, Porl Tenderloins, Maid-Rites and More, and Calhoun County.

Beaverdale Books will have books available for sale and signing.
