1 Book, 1 San Antonio

An announcement on Wednesday, March 7, will reveal the second selection of the "1 Book, 1 San Antonio" reading initiative. Last year, the inaugural book was by John Phillip Santos, entitled "Places Left Unfinished at the Time of Creation."

I don't have any official insight as to what book will be selected, but Stephen Harrigan was in town yesterday for First Friday at Gemini Ink. As some of you may know, he is the author of a widely well-received novel "Gates of the Alamo." February 23 to March 6 is the anniversary of the siege of the Battle of the Alamo. And Wednesday's announcement is taking place in front of the Alamo--maybe in the vinicity of where some gates used to be. Hmmm....
