The Book Club will host authors Chantal Martineau and Joel Salcido in a virtual discussion on Wednesday evening of their books How the Gringos Stole Tequila and The Spirit of Tequila.
In How the Gringos Stole Tequila, Martineau — a New York-based food and culture writer — chronicles tequila's evolution from crude and impure hybrid mixtos into a luxury commodity made from 100% agave.
In The Spirit of Tequila, Salcido documents his travels across Mexico's state of Jalisco, photographing artisanal tequileras in striking detail. Now based in Austin, Salcido is a former staff photographer for the El Paso Times.
The Maverick Book Club’s free event will take place January 6 at 7 p.m. via Zoom. Interested tequila lovers can register at the Trinity University Press website.
