Being Texas

Think 1 Comment on Being Texas 12

Hour 2: What does it mean to be Texan? We’ll discuss the controversies and the contrarians who stir them up this hour with documentarian and historian Glen Sample Ely, author of “Where the West Begins: Debating Texas Identity” (Texas Tech University Press, 2011).

Glen Sample Ely will sign copies of Where the West Begins this Sunday, June 5th from 3-5pm at the Lincoln Park Barnes and Noble located at 7700 West Northwest Highway in Dallas. He’ll also appear at the Sundance Square Barnes and Noble in Fort Worth on Saturday, June 11th and at the TCU Bookstore on Monday, June 13th.

    Not withstanding the author and I have two alma matars in common – I throughly enjoyed this show.  I come from the border area of the Rio Grande Valley and I have always wondered about the social / political history of the area.  Perhaps Dr. Ely’s book will shed some light.
