Catch Doug Swanson at ‘Authors Live’

rsz_9780670026036_large_blood_acesDoug Swanson will be speaking about his book, “Blood Aces: The Wild Ride of Benny Binion, the Texas Gangster Who Created Vegas Poker” on Aug. 13 as part of HPUMC’s “Authors Live” series.

Apparently, Binion was a powerful, Las Vegas casino owner who learned the game from Bugsy Siegel, Howard Hughes, and Whitey Bulger.

As always, the free event takes place at the church at 7 p.m. But if you’d like to pay $30 — which includes a copy of the book — and attend a reception at 6 p.m., make your reservations here or call (214) 523-2240.

You can buy a book and get it signed afterward.
