Dahlia Woods Gallery hosts book reading


'Anahuac: A Texas Story'

Dahlia Woods Gallery and Bad Boy Books will be hosting a book reading and talk with Texas author William D. Darling about his latest literary contribution, "Anahuac: A Texas Story," on Thursday, Feb. 22 at 7 p.m.

The town of Anahuac in 1972 is more than just an isolated outpost on Texas’ Trinity Bay - it’s a place where greed and justice uncomfortably intermingle, where the evangelical fervor of charismatic preachers resonate, where blacks and whites navigate a fragile co-existence, and where a murder leads to even darker mysteries.

William D. Darling, an Austin-based attorney, is a lifelong storyteller and very nearly a native Texan, arriving in his beloved state as an infant in 1942. His first novel, "Morgan’s Point," introduced readers to both the mid-‘60s rough-and-tumble world of the Houston courts where Darling came of age, and the Galveston Bay region that has long fascinated him. His latest novel "Anahuac" is a Grishamesque courtroom thriller set in the Texas tidewater.

"Anahuac" has recieved rave reviews including one from Lone Star Literary Life

"Darling’s second novel, 'Anahuac,' is an entertaining, engrossing, Texas legal thriller that offers both darkly humorous and goodnatured thrusts at life, love, and law... first-rate."
