What a great evening! The New Braunfels Bandit Book Club chose Saving El Chico as their October book selection. I read from the book. Then, we had an active discussion about El Chico and the very real drought in West Texas. Who is the real Nicholas Graystone? Who inspired the Ed Hawkins character? Bea Mc Pherson? And, where could they meet Jake!!  In person.
Several of the members are "closeted"writers. After our get together I hope they will get serious about pursuing their craft, share their work with others, join a writing group - maybe even consider publishing in the future. There's some real talent hiding in Bandit!
Sandy and David Strauss hosted the evening at their lovely new home over looking the Bandit Golf Course, rolling hills, and the Guadalupe.
The meeting turned in to a party. Thanks to all for a fun and memorable time.
