The History Museum on the Square is hosting a book signing by Dr. Brooks Blevins for his new book “A History of the Ozarks, Volume 2: The Conflicted Ozarks.”
The signing will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Saturday, October 12, in the Welcome Center of the museum. The book signing is free to the public, but attendees will have to pay regular admission to tour the rest of the museum.
Blevins, a history professor at Missouri State, has written or edited nine books, a majority of them related to the Ozarks. The latest offering focuses on the Ozarks during the Civil War era of the 1850s through the 1880s.
Normal admission to the History Museum on the Square is $16 for adults; $13 for seniors over 65 years old, students with ID, military members and their families; $10 for children 4-12 years old; and free to children under three years old and younger.
