"God Save Texas: A Journey into the Soul of the Lone Star State" (Encore Presentation)
On this edition of ST, we listen back to our June 2018 chat with the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Lawrence Wright. At that time, his book "God Save Texas" had just appeared; it's a collection of stereotype-busting essays exploring the history, culture, and politics of Lone Star State. As was noted of this book by The New York Times: "Vivid.... Omnivorous.... Affectionate and genial.... [Wright] captures the full range of Texas in all its shame and glory.... An illuminating primer for outsiders who may not live there but have a surfeit of opinions about those who do." This book is now out in paperback, and Wright will be talking about it here in Tulsa tonight (the 27th) at Congregation B'nai Emunah. The event is ticketed, beginning at 7pm.
