|Debra L. Winegarten and her award-winning Oveta Culp Hobby book will be featured at Thirsty Thursday Oct. 15. Doors open at 7 p.m. in the ranch house at Dripping Springs Ranch Park, 1042 Event Center Drive.
Publishe by UT Press, Winegarten's book is a young adult biography about the woman who founded the Women's Army Corps, served as secretary for the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, and ran a media empire.
“I specialize in stories that transform society,” she said. As a writer, she favors biographies about famous Texans, nonfiction, poetry and Jewish-themed children's books.
She earned national attention and a medal from the Military Writers Society of America for her latest work.
According to Thirsty Thursday host Nancy Fierstien, “Cooperating" is the suggested theme for the Open Mike segment of this month's meeting for area poets, songwriters and storytellers. Admission is free. Refreshments are, too. Food pantry donations are always "politically correct."
All Thirsty Thursday programs are co-sponsored by The City of Dripping Springs and New Life Lutheran Church. For more info, call 512-858-2024.
