Perrin alum published; Becky Acuff authors ‘The Peanut Pond’


“But it just takes them on a journey. It carries them into a different world.”

Although the story is set in Oran, Acuff said Mineral Wells is also mentioned in the book. With such strong ties to Northern Palo Pinto County, it only made sense that Acuff debut her novel at her alma mater in Perrin, just about 15 miles from the place that inspired the story.

“This is where I grew up,” she said. “So, it was important for this to be my first book signing.”

The Peanut Pond is now on sale on Amazon and on the Tate Publishing website for $21.99.

Acuff said a portion of the profits will be donated to the Sam Samaneigo Scholarship Fund – named in honor of one of Acuff’s Perrin-Whitt classmates who died in a car accident sophomore year.

If you missed Acuff’s book signing, not to worry. She said she has other book signings in the works and is trying to schedule one at the Boyce Ditto Public Library in Mineral Wells.

She added that if anyone orders the book from her, she can mail them a signed copy directly.  For more information about The Peanut Pond or to order a signed copy, contact Acuff at 817-243-5180 or via email at bdacuff@yahoo.com.
