Preservation series eyes myths, legends and lies

Storyteller and author Diane Williams will share and debunk some of the Magnolia State’s myths, legends and bald-faced lies during this week’s edition of “Preservation in May.” It takes place this afternoon from 5:30 to 7:30 at the Biloxi Visitors Center.

The session is free and open to the public. Refreshments also will be served.

Williams traveled across the Magnolia State to gather local legends for her new book, “Mississippi Folk and the Tales They Tell.”

“She will have the audience rolling in the aisles as she shares stories and autographs books,” said Biloxi Historical Administrator Bill Raymond.

Copies of her book will be available in the Visitors Center Gift Shop. In fact, during this evening’s program, those with Downtown Doubloons can get a 20 percent discount on the book.
