Book It, Texas!: The Captured


October 17, 2015 10:30am - 12:00pm

Celebrate the breadth and depth of Texas writing in this program highlighting Texas books, authors, and writing traditions.

Join author Scott Zesch and discuss his book, The Captured: A True Story of Abduction by Indians on the Texas Frontier. Zesch stumbled onto his great-great-great uncle's grave and discovered he had been captured by the Comanche as a young boy. This led Zesch on a journey across the west, digging through archives, speaking with Comanche elders, and tracking eight other child captives from the region with hauntingly similar experiences. No need to have read the book to attend this lively chat with the author!
