Author Discussion & Signing with Stan "Tex " Banash
Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, Saturday, October 4 at 2pm
Come to Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore to meet Stan "Tex" Banash author of The Roadside History of Illinois. He will discuss & signe his book.

Author finishes third book, 'Roadside History of Illinois’. Stan Banash, a.k.a. “Tex,” a resident of Chicago’s Norwood Park community, recently completed his third book, “Roadside History of Illinois”

The book covers the history of the state from the Ice Age to the present, offering vacationers a series of short trips mostly along old U.S. highways, statehighways and county roads that provide a glimpse into numerous historic sites as well as the history of nearly 250 significant cities, towns and villages in seven geographical regions. Among the book’s features are more than 125 images, regional maps, an Illinois Chronology, a list of Illinois Facts, the lyrics to the seldom heard State Song, “Illinois,” and a list of Illinois Originals, in addition to a Bibliography and

Index. The book also includes a Special Introduction by the late Dee Brown, author of the internationally acclaimed book, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, and was praised in back cover blurbs by former U.S. Sen. Adlai E. Stevenson III and Illinois State Archives Deputy Director Wayne C. Temple. As the Preface notes, Roadside History of Illinois is “designed to help both visitors and residents discover and savor the historical, cultural, and natural opulence of this great state.”

Banash, who was raised in suburban Niles and graduated from Niles Township High School in Skokie, served in the Air Force and then obtained his Bachelor of Philosophy degree in political science from Northwestern University and a Master of Arts degree in Urban Studies from Roosevelt University. His two earlier books were: Best of Dee Brown’s West (Clear Light, 1998) and Dee Brown’s Civil War Anthology (Clear Light, 1998). He also has reviewed numerous books for Wild West magazine, The Tombstone Epitaph, Western Historical Quarterly, Journal of the West, and Roundup magazine.

The Book Cellar is proud to host the Illinois Woman's Press Association as they celebrate the launch of The Anthology. In 1914 the Illinois Woman's Press Association published an anthology.

To celebrate this historical milestone and showcase the talented writers who are the Illinois Woman's Press Association today, 21 members of IWPA collaborated to produce a 2014 Anniversary edition, The Anthology. It was published this spring by Dreamers Tapestry, Inc. The Illinois Woman's Press Association, IWPA (founded in Chicago in 1885) is an organization of communications professionals whose objective is to maintain and improve the professional standards of members in mass communications in Illinois, to promote their interest, and to provide for the sharing of ideas and information. Having celebrated its 125 year anniversary in 2010, IWPA continues to hold a firm place in the history of women communicators in Illinois. Today, IWPA embraces members of all gender and generations. IWPA is an affiliate of the National Federation of Press Women and found on Wikipedia.
