Lewis Fisher: 'American Venice: The Epic Story of San Antonio’s River'

In American Venice, Lewis Fisher uncovers the evolution of San Antonio’s beloved River Walk. He shares how San Antonians refused to give up on the vital water source that provided for them from before the city’s beginnings. In 1941 neglect, civic uprisings, and bursts of creativity culminated in the completion of a Works Projects Administration project designed by Robert H. H. Hugman. The resulting River Walk languished for years but enjoyed renewed interest during the 1968 World’s Fair, held in San Antonio, and has since become the center of the city’s cultural and historical narrative. On Saturday, the Twig hosts a book-signing and discussion with Fisher, to be followed by a reception with wine and cheese.
