David Garza Coming to Cowtown

Well, I found out about this better late than never. David Garza will be in town tomorrow at the Rose Marine Theater for a book release party for Hecho en Tejas: Palabras del Barrio, a celebration of the newly-released anthology of Texas Mexican literature. This event is free and open to the public, but reservations are encouraged. To RSVP or to get more information on this event please call the Rose Marine Theater at 817. 624.8333 or Tammy Gomez at 817.924.9188. The Rose Marine Theater is located at 1440 N. Main St. in Fort Worth. I've seen 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. as kick-off times, so please call.

This collection is edited by Dagoberto Gilb, the author of four books of fiction and nonfiction, including the 1994 PEN/Hemingway Award-winning The Magic of Blood, as well as The Last Known Residence of Mickey Acuña, Woodcuts of Women and Gritos. He currently is on the faculty of the Creative Writing MFA Program at Texas State University, in San Marcos. And if you are not familiar with him, he is the stuff.
