Dinner & A Book Series: Katherine Anne Porter


August 15, 2017
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM


Hotel Emma Library, 136 E Grayson St, San Antonio, TX 78215


Have an early dinner at Supper — our Southern-inspired cuisine will get you in the mood for the first of four book talks about women writers of the South. San Antonio’s literary grande dame, Sherry Kafka Wagner, will share her enthusiasm for Texan Katherine Anne Porter’s work. Porter, Pulitzer Prize winner, journalist, novelist and political activist, is best known for her short stories and the novels Ship of Fools and Pale Horse, Pale Rider.

Have dinner at Supper, then join us for a cocktail and savory bites in the Library for a lively appreciation of two Texas originals (Katherine and Sherry). And we’ve reserved a table in Sternewirth for bibliophiles who’d like to continue the conversation over drinks.

The book event is free for hotel guests. For others, a mere $15 entitles you to a cocktail and snacks in the Library and entry to Sherry’s book event. Seating is extremely limited, so please rsvp at [email protected]
