Join the Friends for Rudder Book Signing Nov. 10

Marketing and Communications | October 24, 2011

The Friends of the Sterling C. Evans Library will host a book signing and talk by Thomas M. Hatfield, author of Rudder: From Leader to Legend, from 3:30–5 p.m., Nov.10 at Cushing Memorial Library and Archives. Published by the Texas A&M University Press, the book recreates the drama from battlefields to boardrooms that defined the life of James Earl Rudder.

Drawing on records from Cushing Library and other sources, Hatfield captures Rudder’s early life, his heroism at Ponte du Hoc, and his years of public service, most notably as president of Texas A&M University.

Books will be available for purchase and signing, as well as an exhibit from the Rudder Papers. Proceeds from sales will benefit the Friends of the Sterling C. Evans Library. The event is open to the public. For more information, contact Charlene Clark.
