Previously (01/23): We featured poet Allison Hedge Coke:

The Big Texas Author Talk is a *free* lecture series devoted to showcasing Texas authors from across our big state.   Each month we feature one Texas author in conversation with another—from New York Times bestsellers living in Dallas, Houston, and Austin to our rich Texas Latinx border authors living in Laredo and McAllen, not to mention from other deep pockets and corners of our culturally diverse state.  

Our lecture series is as entertaining as it is informative—and like Texas itself, we offer a vast array of storytellers who represent the spirit of our extremely distinct Lone Star State and continue to keep us on the literary map. 

In the past, we’ve featured novelists such as Kathleen Kent, Marisol Cortez, Joe Lansdale, and Antonio Ruiz-Camacho and Texas poet laureates such as Carmen Tafolla, Laurie Ann Guerrero, Jenny Brown, and Emmy Perez. 

If you’ve visited with us over the last three years, you know who we are and what we do, and we thank you for your ongoing support. We value your presence and love seeing your faces! 

If you’re new to the Big Texas Author Talk and are just discovering who we are and what we do, we welcome you to join us virtually on the third Wednesday of every month at 7 pm CST.   

About Zarzamora

“It's time to celebrate the poet and buy this book, it's a new voice, not one tied to timid convention or gimmicky stealth that results in poetry of cowardice—t tries to please no one, vociferates its own claim to Chicano identity and culture and does so with exuberance, even compassion and vulnerability—yes, compas y vatos y locos, get off it and go out and buy this book and pass it to other plebe, it’s time to celebrate this poet, unabashedly, honor this book written in blood, tears and laughter and pride, and love, adelante!!” Jimmy Santiago Baca – author of Working in the Dark: Reflections of a Poet of the Barrio.
