Book Signing For East Texas Author

A former Tyler civic and community figure came back home today for a book signing.

Dan Herod was a banker, and also served on The Rose Festival board. Today, he was greeted by many old friends who came by to get a copy of his new book Broad Shoulders: Nuggets Of Inspiration.

It's full of short quips and original quotes, which Herod hopes will help people live happier lives.

Herod said, "I actually took my quotes and tried to move them up a level into a book. That's ideally to help people feel better, live better, smile when things are tough."

Herod wrote the 300 plus quotes in the book over a period spanning three decades.
