Meet the Authors: Growing Up in the Lone Star State: Notable Texans Remember Their Childhoods

August 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm CDT

Join researchers and authors Gaylon Finklea Hecker and Marianne Odom for a presentation and book signing. They began the interviews for this book in 1981 and devoted a professional lifetime to collecting the memories of accomplished Texans to determine what, if anything, about growing up in the Lone Star State prepared them for success.

The resulting forty-seven oral history interviews begin with tales from the early 1900s, when Texas was an agrarian state, and continue through the growth of major cities and the country’s race to the moon. Interviews include notable Texas politicos, actors, news reporters, musicians, writers, athletes, business folks and just plain good storytellers.
