Lies, Legends, and the Absolute Truth On the Menu for Library Brown Bag Lunch, June 9
Wednesday, May 25, 2011 • Posted May 25, 2011

Texas stories – lies, legends, and the absolute truth – will be served up during the next Brown Bag Library Lunch, Thursday, June 9, at 12:00 noon in the Stribling Room of the Eckert Library in Mason. Bring a lunch from home, or pick up something at one of Mason’s fine restaurants, but don’t miss this chance for a stimulating break in the ordinary business of the day. The library board will provide desert. Brown Bag Lunches are a service of the library, organized by the Library Board and open to the public. We hope you’ll come!Donna Ingham is a noted Texana author, researcher, and teller of tales, who has appeared at conferences, festivals, and in theaters across the country. Although Donna is kicking off the Summer Book Hounds Reading Club earlier in the day with stories for children, the Brown Bag Lunch Program will be stories for adults, and as a storyteller for adults, Donna is loved by audiences everywhere. She was featured on the Exchange Place stage at the National Storytelling Festival in 2003 and has appeared in every major festival in the Lone Star State. In addition, Donna is a six-time winner of the title of “Biggest Liar in the State of Texas.” This is in spite of the fact that Donna’s mother taught her it would be a lie to take advantage of being featured in Ripley’s Believe It or Not as a child who would not eat candy or ice cream, only spinach – because it was not true.Donna’s books include the following: Tales with a Texas Twist (2005), 1001 Greatest Things Ever Said About Texas, (2006), Mysteries and Legends of Texas (2010), Texas Idols (2011), and Speaking Ill of the Dead: Jerks in Texas History (2011). Some of you may remember Donna’s appearance last summer, at the annual Mason County Historical Society meeting, where her presentation was on “The Lost San Saba Mines.” Donna Ingham will be back with her books and her stories – so bring your lunch and be ready for a treat for the ears and the mind!
