GAINESVILLE, Tex. ― A student magazine is bringing the history of Texoma closer to home. Seven home schooled students started up a magazine called Bois D’Arc, aimed at telling the stories of local heroes.
Now on their second issue, a signing party was held Friday, and for the last issue they had over 200 people come to get autographs.
The students say this just shows how kids can make a difference.
“It’s really fun being a published author at this age. Most people don't get this opportunity, but this is the second time. It's exciting, and it proves that kids can do something important and something different,” student author Liberty Davidson said.
There are 1,000 issues of Bois D’Arc Magazine printed each year. They sell for $5 each, and the money goes towards funding the next issue.
There is another "book signing" event next Wednesday, December 17 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at Lovejoy's in Whitesboro.
