Sylvan Park book signing Feb. 8

Longtime Sylvan Park residents Doug Eckert and Yvonne Eaves have co-authored a new book about the history of our neighborhood. Doug and Yvonne will sign copies of Nashville's Sylvan Park next Tuesday (Feb. 8) from 5 to 8 p.m. at McCabe Pub (4410 Murphy Road). Here are a few more details from Doug:
It's a coffee-table paperback on the history of our Sylvan Park neighborhood. [Featuring] more than 200 [historic] pictures, [the book] includes a lot of interesting local facts, spiced with some first-rate stories and characters. America's deadliest train accident occurred here. Nashville's first commercial airport. The first Krispy Kreme. A bootlegger with a gravel voice and a steel hook for a hand who ran secret prizefights on Saturday nights.
Please join Doug and Yvonne for this important celebration of Sylvan Park. See you there!
