September Meeting with Jodi Thomas on her Storytelling Journey
Time & Location
About the Event
We are very excited to present a local legend Jodi Thomas, who will talk about her inspiring publishing journey.
This meeting will be held at the Hodges Community Center on the other side of the Municipal Garden and Arts Center.
A fifth-generation Texan, Jodi Thomas chooses to set the majority of her novels in her home state, where her grandmother was born in a covered wagon. A former teacher, Thomas traces the beginning of her storytelling career to the days when her twin sisters were young and impressionable.
Her stories travel through the past and present days of Texas and draw readers from around the world.
In July 2006, Jodi was the 11th writer to be inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. With five RITA’s to her credit, along with National Readers’ Choice Awards and Booksellers’ Best Awards, Thomas has proven her skill as a master storyteller.
Honored in 2002 as a Distinguished Alumni by Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, Thomas also served as Writer in Residence at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas.
