Books on the Bosque

On November 10 you will have the opportunity to hear ten authors review their books, then enjoy lunch prepared by the Four Forks, and at the conclusion of the day visit with these authors.  Books will be available for purchase this fall in the gift shop, and books personalized by the author on the day of the event would make wonderful Christmas gifts! We will highlight a couple of authors a month leading up to the event.

Jan Peck -- author of the bestselling children’s books Way Down Deep in the Deep Blue Sea,  Way Far Away on a Wild Safari, and Way Up High in a Tall Green Tree, just to name a few--will entertain our very young book lovers with her books.  Jan’s awards include Best Children’s Books of the Year and she is a contributor to the magazine Highlights for Children and freelance editor for Boy’s Life magazine.  Jan currently lives in Dallas and will be one of our morning speakers so our youngest may get home for their afternoon naps and sweet dreams about the adventures they have enjoyed in the morning.

Stephen Harrigan is a New York Times bestselling author of ten books of fiction and non-fiction, including the award-winning The Gates of the Alamo and Remember Ben Clayton, which was praised by The Wall Street Journal and awarded the prize for best work of historical fiction by the Society of American Historians.  His latest novel, A Friend of Mr. Lincoln, a work of fiction centering on Abraham Lincoln’s early career as a lawyer and state legislator, was hailed by Publishers Weekly as “superb” and, in the judgment of Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Joseph J. Ellis, “historical fiction at its very best.”  We will be treated to a review of his not-yet-released book They Came from the Sky in our Frazier Performance Hall after lunch. Mr. Harrigan has also written many movies for TNT, HBO, and the Hallmark Channel.  Currently in development is The Which Way Tree, which will star Robert Duvall.  Mr. Harrigan resides in Austin with his wife.  They have three daughters and five grandchildren.     -SD
