Book Signing with Dr. Robert Stretcher "A Fortnight with Ben"

Join us for a book signing with Dr. Robert Stretcher and his book "A Fortnight with Ben" on November 3rd from 2:30 - 3:30PM in the Memorial Museum.

Stretcher is a Professor of Finance in the College of Business Administration at SHSU and writes under the pen name of R Hatfield.

About the book:  A seemingly normal wilderness retreat along the Appalachian Trail suddenly becomes a journey of intrigue and discovery when a severe thunderstorm introduces Sam Fletcher to a great historical figure, Benjamin Franklin.  The book is rich with the history of the development of the United States, including Sam Houston and the story of how Texas was settled.  It also includes fun and informative discussion of electricity and science, history and politics, music, technology, and society even makes this an excellent resource for home-schooling and to supplement public education.  A read for all ages!

Books are currently on sale in the Wigwam Neosho Museum Store and will be available for purchase the day of the event for $14.95.
