Ins and Outs
Black & Blue(s)
Texas Folklife Resources holds the second installation of their free three-series program The Language of Tradition on Saturday, July 26 at 7:30pm at Victory Grill (1104 E. 11th). TFR will host All Black and Some Blues, to feature local blues legends T.D. Bell and Mel Davis; author of 55 children's books, cook, and storyteller Angela Shelf-Medearis; rap group N.O.O.K. (Never Outcasting Our Kind); and Reverend Mack Williams. Plan to arrive early; TFR's last program, The Cowboy Way, was packed.
Barnes & Noble Arboretum hosts San Antonio authors Alicia Galvan, Jacqueline Moody, and Susan San Miguel, who have contributed to a new anthology titled Southwestern Women: New Voices from Tucson's Javelina Press on Saturday, July 26, at 3pm. Caitlin Gannon, the volume's editor, has uncannily woven together themes of poverty and the nuances of language choices to produce a really resonant anthology with Southwestern Women.
Did I Hear Tequila?
