Draper of 'National Geographic' and 'New York Times Magazine,' Harrigan and Wright will discuss (and sign) their books, Big Wonderful Thing and God Save Texas.

For homesick Texans, wannabe Texans, and those who feel Texan from the top of their ten-gall hat to the tips of their spurs, we hope you'll join us for an evening of great barbecue, great books, and great conversation.
