Author Marlene Bradford will present information about severe weather, weather forecasting, and a history of tornadoes at the Nicholson Memorial Library’s upcoming Senior Social Hour. Ms. Bradford will appear at 2 p.m., on Thursday, May 16, at the Central Library, 625 Austin St., in Downtown Garland.

She is the author of Texas Tornadoes: The Lone Star State’s Deadliest Twisters and Arkansas Tornadoes: The Natural State’s Deadliest Twisters. In addition to teaching at the high school and college level, Ms. Bradford has spoken on this topic at the Allen Public Library.
