The Travis Club

San Antonio Book Lovers: September 2013

San Antonio Book Lovers Meetup holds a Book Swap and Gab Session every second Saturday.

We had a record crowd today as author Mark Louis Rybczyk shared his experiences researching and writing his book “The Travis Club.” He and his guests, including Bruce Hathaway and Steven Sellers, entertained us while speaking about the history of San Antonio and let fall tidbits of fascinating legends about the city. Most of his research for this book was done for his earlier non-fiction work, “San Antonio Uncovered.” This newer thriller, “The Travis Club,” has been called “The Da Vinci Code of San Antonio,” and many of us bought copies and had them autographed in anticipation of a great read. Thank you, Mark, for a fun discourse.

The Goblin Corps by Ari Marmell
And When She Was Good by Laura Lippman

  1. Jan, thanks again for doing this! A minor correction on one of the books. Nine Inches is by Tom Perrotta. I know it can be hard to catch all the title & author info, especially when we don’t follow our own rule! I am certainly often guilty of that.
