Dr. Linda Thorsen Bond presents 'Finding the Turning Point: Based on a True Story' Thursday, February 13, 2020
6:00 PM


The Midland College Fasken Learning Resource Center invites you to a special guest lecture author presentation and Valentine's chocolate celebration with Linda Thorsen Bond.  The evening is FREE (including the chocolate).

What was the pivotal moment when everything changed, when things got better or went bad? Dr. Linda Thorsen Bond builds her writing around the turning point that changes the course of history for a person or a place. She has written and produced 20 historical plays, including The Wedding of Sarah Brown Dorsey at Midland’s Brown-Dorsey House; The 1907 Wild West Show at the Scarborough Lineberry House in Midland and Roses for Santa Rita at the Petroleum Museum. The televised documentary Hot Time in the Old Town, based on her historical play in Colorado, won two national 2018 Telly Awards.

Her 2019 historical novel, Saving the Oldest Town in Texas is about the scoundrel who robbed his own bank in 1903 and left his wife, his children and his mansion behind in Nacogdoches. She’ll talk about the turning point for the mayor and the town he abandoned, her novel approach to history and her favorite phrase, "based on a true story."
