10:00a to 11:00a
Sat, January 19, 2019
Angela Rojas

Join writer, professor, NPR broadcaster, and Texan, W.F. Strong for Stories from Texas...some of them are true.

You might call W.F. Strong a student of all things Texas. In 2010, he began sharing his Stories From Texas vignettes on NPR stations, most recently on the Texas Standard's network of 30 stations. For this book celebrating his home state, Strong has collected 75 of his broadcasts. You’ll hear his inimitably Texan voice in your mind’s ear as he weaves stories on subjects ranging from how to talk Texan to Texas bards and troubadours; from tall Texas tales to Lone Star icons like Charles Goodnight, Tom Landry and Blue Bell ice cream; from legends and heroes of the past to some heartfelt memories of his own.
