Join Houston Historian and TV's Mister McKinney of Historic Houston for the second season of live from the Heritage Society! Meet Galveston’s author and historian Kimber Fountain on Wednesday, July 7, 2021. All you have to do is visit our Facebook Page or Instagram page and watch the show for free!
Kimber Fountain has authored three books on Galveston history: Galveston Seawall Chronicles (2017), Galveston's Red Light District: A History of The Line (2018), and The Maceos and The Free State of Galveston: An Authorized History.
Kimber is also a professional speaker who holds history and book lectures all over Texas, and in the spring of 2019, she created the Red Light District Tours of Galveston, a historical walking tour inspired by her books. Devoted to promoting and preserving the local Galveston arts community, Kimber served as chair of the Arts and Historic Preservation Advisory Board to the Galveston City Council for six years, and she is occasionally seen on stage at the Island East-End Theatre Company in downtown Galveston.
The evening starts with information about THS from executive director Alison Ayres Bell. During the show, you will also be able to ASK the subject matter expert questions LIVE. We often have prizes for answering #HoustonHistory trivia. [Organizer's description]
