Georgetown Heritage Society welcomes Mike Cox

November 3, 2012 by  

“The Incredible Story of Josiah Wilbarger and Stories of Other Texas Legends” will be presented by Texas author and speaker Mike Cox on November 17. Brought to the city by Georgetown Heritage Society, the presentation will include colorful information about rough times in 1833 and Wilbarger’s experience with being scalped and left for dead in the desert. However, through his sister Sallie who appeared to him in an apparition, he survived and lived another 12 years.

Mike Cox has authored 20 non-fiction books in addition to several essays and articles. He has written a syndicated newspaper column weekly since 2000. The column is called ‘Texas Tales’ and features facts and little-known information about incidents and legends in Texas history. Mr. Cox is an elected member of the Texas Institute of Letters.

The presentation begins at 10:00 am. Coffee will be served at 9:30 am and the public is encouraged to come early to enjoy the hot coffee and engage in conversation and speculation about the wild 1800s.

Historical societies routinely use printing companies to assist with preparing materials to advertise upcoming events to ensure attendance is maximized. Frequently flyer printing is done for the purpose of distributing flyers throughout the community to advise of the upcoming event. Brochure printing is also an effective tool to list all upcoming events in addition to the one being promoted. Brochures have a long shelf life so they can contain information far into the future and be utilized in distribution centers and at the point of entry at the event.
