New Jim Dent Book
« on: September 08, 2011, 12:06:35 pm »
Sherwood's own Jim Dent has another book coming out - the story of Freddie Steinmark.  You younger guys need to know this was a University of Texas DB (I believe) that played against Arkansas in the 1969 Shootout, then subsequently lost his leg and then his life to cancer. I understand it is being looked at by a few studios to be bought for film.

Jim says he will have a book signing this fall at Books a Million in NLR to promote the release. I believe they had a release party in Dallas recently.  Also, Twelve Mighty Orphans has been optioned for film also.
