Author Mark Stuertz Presents His Book: Secret Dallas: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure
FREE to the public, this lecture is presented by Dallas Heritage Village
Author Mark Stuertz will present his book Secret Dallas: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure on Thursday, May 17, in Browder Springs Hall at Dallas Heritage Village, 1515 S. Harwood. Doors open at 6:30, and the program begins at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Take an excursion through the weird, the wry, and the wonderful idiosyncrasies that comprise the Big D. From the Playboy Marfa bunny-with-a-muscle-car sculpture, to the ceaseless failed attempts to navigate the Trinity River, to the invention of the computer chip and German chocolate cake, Dallas is the birthplace of the whimsical, the wistful, and the profound.
“Secret Dallas answers questions about Big D you never knew you had, catapulting you through a portfolio of little-known but fascinating people, places, episodes, and artifacts,” said Mark Stuertz. “Think of it as a scavenger hunt travelogue, providing insights into hidden rhinestones and diamonds in the caliche. Secret Dallas is a riveting excursion into the city’s odds and ends, where the rare and the phenomenal express the big, the bold, and the brash in everyone.”
