The Loblolly Chronicles – A Memoir of Sorts




“I am happiest when writing.”

Take a peek behind the Pine Curtain with East Texas essayist Gary Borders. A career newspaperman, Borders has published a weekly column for more than 40 years. In this, his third collection, he writes about everything from taking a walk in the woods and the futility of naming cats to living through a pandemic and an assault on democracy. Borders chronicles the ups and downs of working on his 57-acre hobby farm, Three Geese Farm. He advocates for the importance of the local newspaper and library. He examines grief and joy, mortality and nature, all with the lively, down-to-earth insight for which he’s known.

Borders’ columns read as mini-memoirs, a personal exploration of life as he sees it and a roadmap of his past thirteen years. But with each, he addresses the universal: family, home, and the inevitability of change.
