The Luck Archive

When: Wed., June 17, 6-8 p.m. 2015

The chance discovery of four four-leafed clovers pressed into a copy of the 1940s-era book 1,000 Facts Worth Knowing helped spark the idea for Mark Menjivar’s The Luck Archive, a fascinating volume exploring how luck and superstition factor into the lives of everyone from a motivational speaker to a New Orleans witch. Born in Virginia, raised in Central America and freelancing as an artist/photographer in San Antonio since 2006, Menjivar assembled more than 500 stories, objects and photographs for the book, which comes to light at a discussion and signing Tuesday at the Twig.
