Daniel talks with Marcia Hatfield Daudistel, co-author with Bill Wright of "Authentic Texas: People of the Big Bend." Marcia talks about how the idea arose for the book, which profiles just a few of the unique characters who decided to make the Big Bend region of Texas their home. Marcia shares some interesting tidbits about some of the people featured in the book, and how their personalities were captured in Bill Wright's photographs. Marcia & Bill will present a lecture on the book on Friday, Nov. 15, at 6 p.m., at the UTEP Undergraduate Learning Center, Room 116. They will hold a book signing on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 1-5 p.m., at the Westside Barnes & Noble (705 Sunland Park Dr.).
For this week's Poem of the Week, Marcia Hatfield Daudistel reads a poem by her sister Frances Hatfield, from her collection "Rudiments of Flight." The poem is "Nude Descending a Staircase."
