After 300 years of history that began with cultural and military invasions, a century as la reina de la frontera (to quote Angela de Hoyos), the birth of the Mexican Revolution, more than a century as a major tourist destination, the rise and fruition of the Chicano movement, and at long last the recognition of our iconic missions as World Heritage Sites... where are we now as a literary city?

Join us for a public plática to discuss this question, and to hear a range of short readings from the newly published Literary San Antonio (TCU Press), edited by Bryce Milligan. Dr. Tomás Ybarra-Frausto and Milligan will lead the discussion. Writers y luminarios literarios include Texas Poet Laureate Rosemary Catacalos, San Antonio and Texas Poet Laureate Jenny Browne, journalist and cultural historian Cary Clack, and San Antonio book collector extraordinaire Bill Fisher.

Literary San Antonio will be available for purchase and signing by The Twig Book Shop.

This is the first of a year-long series of pláticas that consider San Antonio’s rich multi-cultural literary history.
