ARLINGTON - Jeff Guinn, author of the new book "Go Down Together: The True Story of Bonnie and Clyde," will speak at a meeting of the Friends of The University of Texas at Arlington Library. The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 23 in the sixth floor parlor of the UT Arlington Central Library, 702 Planetarium Place.

Guinn is the former books editor at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and the author of several books. His most recent book is based on exhaustive research that tells the real story of Bonnie and Clyde, two kids from a Dallas slum who fell in love and went on a dangerous and deadly crime spree. Thanks to newsreels, crime magazines and the new wire services that transmitted stories and photos nationwide, Bonnie and Clyde became household names and folk figures. Guinn debunks the myth of the two criminals and depicts them as they really were-two of the most inept crooks ever.

Copies of Guinn's book will be for sale at the meeting and he will be available for autographs. Contact Betty Wood at 817-272-7421 or bwood@uta.edu for questions or to RVSP.
