Columnist John Moore

to speak in Overton

McMillan Memorial Library, 401 S. Commerce, Overton, will have its first Book Talk of 2020 at noon Jan. 21 with Tyler resident, columnist and communications professional John Moore.

Moore will discuss his books, “Write of Passage: A Southerner’s View of Then and Now” and “Write of Passage Volume II.”

His books are a collection of his columns from his years of writing for the Tyler Morning Telegraph. Moore writes about growing up in the ‘70s and ‘80s in rural Arkansas and living in East Texas.

He said he avoids writing about politics because it starts arguments, and avoids stories that are date and place specific.

A light lunch will be served in the program room of McMillan Memorial Library. Call the library, 903-834-6318, for more information.

A new tea shop could soon come to Tyler.

A city of Tyler building permit was issued Friday for NobiliTea at 2376 Dueling Oaks Suite 400. The project has a value of $80,000, according to the city’s permit website.

NobiliTea is a tea shop that provides what it calls the best loose leaf tea and handcrafted drinks and healthy options, according to its website.

The possible Tyler location is in the same building as Texas de Brazil. NobiliTea has locations in Houston and Graham.
