When: Sat., April 29, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

Amy Stone is an associate professor of sociology and anthropology at Trinity University. She is appearing in support of her book Cornyation: San Antonio’s Outrageous Fiesta Tradition. Through vintage and contemporary photography and oral histories and stories, the book documents the changes and continuity in the show, highlighting a few important themes in the event's history, including the fact that it has always been a “party with a purpose” that attracts a broad audience, satirizes elites and politics, and creates a place for the public display of campy gay humor.
