Take a sneak peek behind the scenes of a western classic with the City of Nacogdoches Historic Sites Department at the True Grit Exhibit opening. During the month of October set sketches by Gregory Hill, who worked as an illustrator on the 2010 Coen Brothers True Grit movie, will be displayed at the Nacogdoches Railroad Depot – 101 Old Tyler Road. Visitors will be able to see early sketches of the Monarch Boarding house, Stone Hills and the streets of Fort Smith, Arkansas as well as get a little insight to the movie making process with quotes from Mr. Hill.
The exhibit’s grand opening on October 5th at 7:00pm will be one of the first of the One Book, One City festivities that are to take place throughout the month. Be sure to get a copy of Charles Portis’ True Grit for yourself from the Nacogdoches Public Library so you’re well versed in this Western classic before our month long event series kicks off in October. A full list of One Book, One City events is available on the City of Nacogdoches’ webpage and can also be found on the Nacogdoches Public Library Facebook page.
In addition to the exclusive look into the creative process for the movie, light refreshments of beans and corn dodgers will be served. Admission to this event is free and appropriate for all ages.
