Meet Historian Richard Schwartz between 12-4pm and have him personally sign a book or two for you, or for family and friends.

“Schwartz’s rags-to-riches-to-rags chronicle of Curtis’ life and times is engrossingly written, and includes numerous illustrations from that era...Schwartz brings readers the life of a way-famous performing artist of whom most of us have likely never heard--a trailblazing actor for his time, and a media celebrity before that label became common currency. Making M. B. Curtis’s acquaintance is indisputably worth a reader’s time.”, Dallas Public Library reviewer Cathy Ritchie
