Jefferson Carnegie Library is hosting author Marjorie Herrera Lewis on Monday, February 3 at 6:00 pm.

With her experience as a female sports journalist covering the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, and Dallas Mavericks, Ms. Lewis felt Tylene Wilson’s story was hers to tell. Long-time East Texas sportscaster Charlie Chitwood and Jefferson High School Athletic Director Coach Antwain Jimmerson will be moderating the program.
