Join us on October 27 at Bihl Haus Arts at 2:00 p.m. for a gallery talk by Barbara Renaud Gonzalez and book signing for from her new book on Willie Velasquez,”Dear San Antonio, I’m Gone but Not Lost”.
Bárbara Renaud González is the eldest of eight. She was born in Beeville, Texas, and grew up in the Texas Panhandle. Her mother was Mexican, and her father was from the King Ranch. Though her parents didn’t finish high school, they loved books. Almost everyone in her family has finished college—five advanced degrees and one Ph.D. Bárbara grew up with her mother’s poetry and her father’s newspapers, and she inherited their stories. She received her B.A. in social work from UT/RGV and her MSW in social work/community practice from the University of Michigan. Bárbara’s first novel, Golondrina, why did you leave me?, was the first Chicana novel to be published by the University of Texas Press in 2009. This is her third book.
