Sunday, October 14 at 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Hugh Asa Fitzsimons III talks about his new book, published by Trinity University Press, A Rock between Two Rivers: Fracturing a Texas Family Ranch, the story of a man coming to terms with the environmental legacy of his family’s ranch in Dimmit County, Texas, and reckoning with the birthright he’ll leave for the generations who follow. What began for Hugh Fitzsimons as a mission to expose local ecological hazards from hydraulic fracking has turned into a lifelong effort to understand the more complicated story of how his family changed the land inherited from his grandfather, and deeper still, how the land irrevocably changed the family. Reception and event free and open to the public.
