For folks in Austin, please come to Grits’ zine launch Sunday, July 23rd, from 2-4 p.m.. We’re going to record interviews w/ me and others by Congressman Greg Casar about the zine topic (the history of a neighborhood grocery store 2 blocks from my house that turns 100 years old this year) and publish it afterward as a podcast. Event is at:
Community Garden wine bar
1401 Cedar Ave., Austin, 78702
(between 12th and MLK, in East Austin)
The zine essentially takes the same investigative reporting skills Grits readers have seen me exercise on this blog for two decades, and applies them to a seemingly mundane topic — a dilapidated corner grocery store — with remarkable and compelling stories emerging that inform the whole history of the neighborhood.
If you can’t come to the event, please do pre-order a zine, if you haven’t already. And thanks, as always for your support over the years and into this next phase.
