Houston History Book Fair & Symposium

Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on November 10, 2015

If any of y’all are in the Houston area, I’d love to meet you at the Houston History Book Fair & Symposium this Saturday, November 14. Admission is free, and it’s a great event that highlights local history writers and their work.


Houston History Book Fair & Symposium
Saturday, November 14, 2015, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Historic Julia Ideson Building
550 McKinney Street in Downtown Houston


There’s a great list of speakers presenting on their work during the day. I’ll have copies of both my steamboat and blockade-running books for sale ($20 ea., two for $35, three for $50, and 4+ at $15 ea.). If you already have a copy, or want to order one online ahead of time (at a bigger discount than I can make), bring that and I’ll be happy to autograph it. But mostly I’d like to meet and talk to folks. If nothing else, the book fair is a great place to pick up some holiday gifts for friends and family.

Hope to see y’all there!

    We were in Houston — gads it was just last weekend! Where we did a presentation from The American Slave Coast at the Brazos Bookstore. Dang, on the timing, because otherwise we could have caught up with you.

    8 weeks on tour support for the book — it nearly killed us. Not exaggerating. But very grateful we had the opportunity and wherewithall to do this, including the friends in Houston, who set it up and gave a dinner party and put us up as well.

    Thanks! So much to be thankful for this year particularly.

    But I think I think that every year — that’s how fortunate I am.

    Love, C.
