Highlights of Monday's SLHW Meeting

The Society of Latino and Hispanic Writers of San Antonio held the first meeting for 2012 last Monday, January 9 at 7:30 p.m. at Barnes & Noble San Pedro Crossings.

The society was honored to receive as first guest for the year, five time Emmy Award winner journalist, Mr. Patricio Espinoza.

Thank you, Mr. Espinoza for visiting with us and we look forward to working with you this year!
