Photographer/author Enlow to give talk about Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch aboard Dallas trolley, sign books afterward, July 14
The award-winning photographic volume Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch author Jeremy Enlow will kick off a new author lecture series in Dallas Thursday, July 14.
Enlow will talk aboard the Green Dragon trolley about what life is like on the famed Waggoner Ranch, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. The trolley will end at Klyde Warren Park, and Enlow will have a book signing from 6:30-8:30 p.m. under the Southwest Porch at the park.
This is a joint venture between Uptown Dallas Inc, McKinney Avenue Transit Authority (MATA) and Klyde Warren Park.
“Jeremy’s ability to capture the pure, raw beauty of this sacred land and those that work their entire lives to keep it alive is remarkable,” said Anita Simmons, director of marketing for Uptown Dallas, Inc. “The story of the Waggoner Ranch is significant to Texans and we are thrilled to have Mr. Enlow share his stories and images with the Dallas community and what better way than on our historic McKinney Avenue Trolley.”
The Green Dragon trolley, built in 1926, is air conditioned and equipped with a PA system. Advance tickets are suggested as seats are limited.
The book signing at Klyde Warren Park will coincide with a concert in the park Thursday evening. The concert and book signing are free and open to the public. This author lecture series is the first of its kind for Uptown Dallas, Inc and MATA.
“It’s an honor to speak in Dallas about the cowboy way of life at the largest ranch under one fence in the United States,” Enlow said. “Can’t get much better than talking about Texas cowboys aboard the historic Green Dragon trolley.”
