When: Wed., June 14, 6-7:15 p.m.

Dr. Amy Stone will read and discuss her new book, Cornyation: San Antonio's Outrageous Fiesta Tradition. Told through more than one hundred photographs and dozens of interviews, Cornyation is the first history of this major Fiesta San Antonio event, tracing how it has become one of Texas’s iconic and longest-running celebrations, and one of the Southwest's first large-scale fundraisers for HIV-AIDS research, raising more than two million dollars since 1990.
