San Antonio Express-News highlights six writers at it’s 28th Annual Book & Author Luncheon

Love a good story? How about photographs? Lessons in history?

This year’s San Antonio Express-News Book & Author Luncheon offers these and so much more for lovers of books. The luncheon slated for Wednesday, October 23, will be held at the Grand Hyatt, 600 E. Market Street.

Six authors will each make a short presentation during the luncheon.  Three of the authors have a Texas focus, another is a Texas author who writes about mysteries set in the United Kingdom, and one author has written a cookbook that touts Southern recipes. The children’s author book is titled, “When a Kid Like Me Fights Cancer”. To learn more about the authors and their books, click here.
