Texas in her Own Words is the winner!

Texas in Her Own Words

Thanks to everyone who showed up at Tuesday night's kickoff celebration of Round Rock Reads!  A special thanks to City Council Member Carlos Salinas for announcing the winning book and to author Tweed Scott for his entertaining talk. We'd also like to thank Starbucks for providing coffee and yummy pastries and for Barnes and Noble selling copies of all of the nominated books that evening.

 Now it's time to read the book!  You can check out the book at the library, or purchase the book at Barnes and Noble.  Then in April, we'll show the film      The Unforeseen at the Round Rock Higher Education Center (April 7th), have a panel discussion of Round Rock's origins (April 17th), and hold a book discussion with author Tweed Scott at Barnes and Noble (April 24th). You won't want to miss any of these great events!


And The Winner Is....

You'll find out if you come to the Round Rock Reads kickoff celebration this Tuesday night at the library!  At 7 PM, City Council Member Carlos Salinas will announce the book that we will read as a community in the coming months.  Author Tweed Scott will talk to us about what a real Texan is, we'll have yummy snacks, and Barnes & Noble will be there selling all all six of the nominated books.  And, we'll give away raffle prizes of the winning book to three lucky people.

See ya there!
