Dallas Heritage Village, in partnership with the Dallas Historical Society, will present the second annual Nancy Farina Lecture Series featuring award-winning author and Doc Holliday expert Victoria Wilcox. The free event honors the late Farina, a 20-year employee of Dallas Heritage Village.
Wilcox, the award-winning author of the historical novel trilogy, Southern Son: The Saga of Doc Holliday, will share stories of the Western legend’s Texas career from her second book, Doc Holliday: Gone West to Texas. The Southern Son saga follows his life from his youth in Georgia during the Civil War and Reconstruction to the last days of the Wild West.
The first book in the trilogy, Inheritance, was released in 2013 and honored Wilcox as Georgia Author of the Year. The newly released second book in the trilogy tells the story of Doc Holliday’s Texas years, starting with his troubled life in 1870s Dallas.
Light refreshments and beverages will be served the event. Barnes & Noble will have copies of the author’s books for sale after the talk. Reservations are requested at dallasheritagevillage.org or by calling 214-413-3674.
