This month, Texas PBS, a non-profit association of the 12 Texas public television stations, will launch a new online book group devoted to Texas history. The first book chosen for discussion is UT Press’s Let the People In: The Life and Times of Ann Richards by Jan Reid.
The group will be a reader-led experience, with Texas PBS bringing in authors/experts and documentaries/artwork to create a multifaceted, educational, and interesting experience for group members. A new book will be selected each month.
Mr. Reid will join the book club for a live web chat from the Bullock Texas State History Museum on Wednesday, May 29, at 8 pm. Find out more information about this special event at www.texaspbs.org/texasourtexas/.
The book club is a part of Texas, Our Texas, a new online initiative by Texas PBS that celebrates, as their website states, “our shared history as Texans by exploring the events, cultural groups, communities and individuals that have come together over the centuries to create the state we live in today.”
