This episode is a little different and features short conversations with several authors about their most recent book and involvement with the 2022 Boerne Book & Arts Festival. The format is the same as the one we did for the 2021 Boerne Book & Arts Festival and I’m grateful to the Patrick Heath Public Library for inviting The Deckle Edge back for a second year.
For those that don’t know, Boerne is a beautiful bedroom community just north of San Antonio, Texas, and the book festival takes place each year on Main Plaza on the first Saturday in October. This year’s event featured authors such as Sarah Bird and Colonel Eileen Collins, as well as author panels with topics such as Women and the Space Program, Hill Country Rivers and Fishing, and Myths and Mysteries of the Lone Star State.
As I said, I’m grateful to the Patrick Heath Public Library for putting on the event and for inviting us to participate, as well as to all the authors who spent time with us. I hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed making it.
