Marsellos book signing

A special book signing for Lufkin architect and author Floyd Marsellos, 94, was held Nov. 16 at the Allan Shivers Library and Museum in Woodville. Attendees from across East Texas listened as Marsellos autographed books while speaking about his latest novel. Marsellos, a World War II veteran, practiced architecture in Lufkin for 35 years and is responsible for the design of major buildings at Angelina College and Stephen F. Austin University as well as numerous churches and homes in East Texas. His novel, ‘’Jayn — Her Own Woman,’’ is the story of Jayn Arden, a young woman who ventures into the field of architecture in the 1920s, a field dominated by men, and blazes a trail for other independent-minded women to follow.The novel is available from Amazon and Kindle in both ebook and paperback formats.
