Hope to see all of you at our next meeting of the Granbury Camera Club on Tuesday, October 18 at The Shanley! We have a very interesting presentation by a renowned author/photographer/musician. Questions? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 817-680-4849. Ya'll come!
Tui Snider, published author, photographer and musician from Azle, Texas, will address the Granbury Camera Club at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, October 18, at The Shanley House, 224 N. Travis St. The meeting is free and open to the public.
Snider, who was named 2016 Writer In Residence by the Tarleton State University’s Langdon Review, will share her insights and experiences as an artist who has combined her creative passions to publish three bestselling books, produce musical CDs, create a blog and host radio shows.
Snider’s travel photos have been featured in FOX Travel news, Coast to Coast AM, easyJet and other publications. She also has 57 images in the poetry book Wild Woman Walking by Morgan Dragonwillow.
Bestsellers by Snider were inspired by her home state of Texas. Titles include Unexpected Texas: a travel guide to offbeat and overlooked places in North Texas, Paranormal Texas: a travel guide to haunted places near Dallas & Fort Worth and The Lynching of the Santa Claus Bank robber: the strange-but true history of a bad Santa.
Snider describes herself as “an inquisitive world traveler who loves sharing with audiences in an informative and lighthearted way.” She frequently speaks to groups and also co-hosts two streaming radio shows — Teal Gray Worldwide Radio and Para Mysteries. For her broadcasts, she interviews people from all over the world. Much of Snider’s work is focused on offbeat or overlooked travel destinations, strange-but-true history, cemetery symbolism and haunted lore.
While in Granbury, Snider hosted a photo walk around the square. Last month, her photography exhibit entitled “Meme, Myself & iPhone” was on display at the Dora Lee Langdon Center. According to Snider, her exhibit’s title was homage to the power of the Internet and in reference to the fact that all her exhibit’s photos were taken on an iPhone. To accompany the exhibit, she also produced a 10-song album of her original songs and produced a companion book.
