Small Book Group Discussions

I’ve been meeting with small book groups to read and discuss Footfalls to the Alamo since last December. I can’t tell you how inspiring it is to meet with people who enjoy reading about Texas history as much as I do.  It’s certainly complicated! At a recent book talk, one woman said something like, “This book has really opened my eyes. I hadn’t considered other perspectives on the settlement of Texas before.”  I think it’s wonderful to open our minds and perspectives even as adults. It warmed my heart to know that some of the women had read the information on Señora Candelaria’s dog from my author page blog prior to our meeting!
