The Joe Barnhart Bee County Library will host a book signing for author Frank Griffin on Saturday, June 7, beginning at 2 p.m.

Griffin’s book, “Touched By Fire, one man’s road from Alabama to Dallas, 1954-1963,” begins with the story of his father and the death of Attorney General-elect Albert Patterson of Alabama, then the events less than an hour after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, in which the author himself gives a front row view.

Between these two events Griffin grew up in one of the strangest decades in American history. His story touches that of one of the era’s best known governors, John Patterson of Alabama. It intersects with mob bosses and CIA operations. There’s even room for country music and barroom brawls. This story shows how Griffin’s life was truly “touched by fire.”

News Papers and libraries are two of the most important industries that keep the Americans not only educated,but also informed at a very small

expense,and this city has both.
