Guest Speaker:  Irene "Cindy" Sandell, award-winning Texas author 
Presentation: Early Texas and the Fort System

A fifth generation Texan, author Irene Sandell knows a lot about our state’s history.  A Texas history teacher for more than thirty years, and now retired from the teaching profession, she uses her expert knowledge in her award-winning novels and in documentaries for the Texas History classroom. In all, she has filmed, written and produced twenty documentaries and has also written several textbooks that are used in classrooms across the state.  The videos encompass pre-history to modern times. For information, visit www.texasvis.com.

Sandell is also the author of four award-winning novels set in Texas: In a Fevered Land, River of the Arms of God, House on Swiss Avenue, and Beloved Over All, winner of the 2017 WILLA Literary Award for Original Softcover Fiction and a 2017 winner of the Will Rogers Silver Medallion Award for Western Fiction. Sandell's novels combine her love of Texas history with her passion for writing. She enjoys collecting the "side bits of history" (history's impact on individual lives) that fuel her tales. Her books tell the heartfelt stories of people woven into true places and events in the Lone Star State. Visit www.irenesandell.com for more information about her books.

            A resident of Plano, Sandell will autograph and sell copies of her books after the presentation.
