GRAPEVINE, TEXAS: THE STORIES BEHIND OUR CITY STREETS
John Boyd is a local physician and historian who has lived in the area with his family the last 30 years. His book, Grapevine Texas: the stories behind our city streets, tells the human stories behind our city's street names and the fascinating characters that transformed the 1843 settlement into a modern city in the heart of Dallas-Fort Worth. John and wife Becky are active Grapevine festival volunteers. His past book, Parkland Hospital, was recently featured on KERA's "Think" radio program. It details the 120 year history of Parkland and the UT Southwestern Medical School.
Come hear Dr. John Boyd enlighten us at our January 23rd meeting in the Community Room at the Grapevine Public Library at 7pm.
