‘Images of America: Oak Cliff’: Free book snatched up; watch the blog for another chance today

I’ve got a free copy of "Images of America: Oak Cliff" — the book highlighted in May’s Oak Cliff Advocate — for the first person who sends me an email.

If you win, I can either mail you the book or you can pick it up at our office. The latter would be better if you’re planning to attend the Oak Cliff Lions meeting this Wednesday, where authors Alan C. Elliott, Gayla Brooks Kokel and Patricia Summey will be the featured speakers and will be signing copies.

The book appears to be a hit — Dicho’s owner Jorge Alvarez told me his store was hopping during the recent book signing, and when I was in the store last week, the 120 copies it originally had were down to a table display of five or six. Apparently, the Cedar Hill Barnes and Noble had only 30 copies for its book signing, and all were sold out before the authors even made it to the store.

Watch the Back Talk Oak Cliff blog tomorrow for another chance to win. To make sure you don’t miss your chance, sign up for our RSS feed and you’ll be notified each time a new post is made to the blog.
