After months of planning, and lots of reading, this year’s Lake Travis Reads program will culminate with an appearance by author Joe Nick Patoski at 7 p.m. May 8 at Lake Travis Community Library, 1938 Lohmans Crossing, in Lakeway.
“Joe Nick is an engaging and entertaining speaker,” said Barbara Hathaway, Bee Cave Public Library director. “In his four decades of writing about Texas, he has gathered a wealth of stories about the rich and famous, the infamous, and everyone in between. Everyone will enjoy his talk even if they haven’t read his books yet.”
Patoski has written a number of nonfiction books, many of them related to Texas. His biographies of Willie Nelson and Stevie Ray Vaughan have been well received.
“Patoski’s books were checked out dozens of times among the three libraries since the announcement of the program,” said Morgan McMillian, Lake Travis Community Library director. “His most recent title, ‘The Dallas Cowboys: the outrageous history of the biggest, loudest, most hated, best loved football team in America,’ is popular with our patrons who love football.”
Bee Cave Public, Lake Travis Community and Spicewood Community libraries jointly sponsor Lake Travis Reads to bring the community together to read and discuss a shared book or a body of work by a single author.
The event is free and open to the public. For information, contact Lake Travis Community Library at 263-2885.
