Book Signing at the Museum
The Lavaca Historical Museum is pleased to announce it will host a book reading & signing for Bob Zumwalt’s new book “TRAPPED BY A MOUSE and Other Stories” on Saturday April 15, 2017 starting at 10:00 am.
An engineering career rich with interesting experiences, people, and travel inspired Bob to write many of the stories in this collection.
The stories cover growing up in Hallettsville, dealing with girls, serving in the US Army, getting married, working in the global oil refining business, and retirement.
Some are fantasy stories, such as those day-dreamed by young Bobby while hiding up a hackberry tree from his Mom to avoid work.
The title story, “Trapped by a Mouse,” relates how Bob met his wife, Doris, and includes her memorable opening line.
