Book Signing Reception & Art Sale

Something of a one-stop shop for the local history buff, this signing and sale unites the authors of three giftable books that celebrate San Antonio in distinct ways. Published by the History Press, San Antonio’s Historic Market Square sheds light on the backstory of an Alamo City landmark from the perspective of Edna Campos Gravenhorst, a South Texas native hailed as “a storyteller of the working class.” An updated and expanded version of Mary V. Burkholder’s 1973 classic, Jessie N.M. Simpson’s The King William Area, A History And Guide To The Houses goes beyond the storied neighborhood to explore “the history of the people who lived there throughout the years.” An accomplished local lensman who’s represented in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery and the National Museum of Mexican Art, Al Rendon casts a broad net over the Alamo City in San Antonio, A Photographic Portrait, a collaboration with author Gary Whitford that covers the missions, the River Walk, Bob Wade’s record-setting cowboy boots, Fiesta and plenty in between.
