BUSTED: Brash Stories from Texas and New Mexico
Join us for a discussion with Bryan Mealer and Joshua Wheeler, the authors of new books about hardscrabble times, places, and people in Texas and New Mexico.
Mealer's "The Kings of Big Spring," which has been called the Texas version of Hillbilly Elegy, is a saga of God, family, and oil across many generations of the authors own family. Wheeler's "Acid West," a collection of essays about Southern New Mexico, has been called a freaky, stylish, heart-cracking-open book. The evening's discussion is moderated by Gustavo Arellano of the Los Angeles Times.
Brought to you by The Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West, The Huntington Library Research Division, and The Journal of Alta California (AltaOnline.com).
A reception and booksigning follows the program.
