Schreiner University will host “Novel, TX Writers of the Texas Hill Country,” a free event featuring native Texan and author Mike Blakely.
The event will start at 6 p.m. today in the Schreiner Outfitters Bookstore on campus.
Blakely, a three-time winner of the Western Writers of America’s Spur Award, will read a selection from his latest work, “A Sinister Splendor,” a historical novel about the Mexican War, chosen because it reflects the school’s current theme of compassion and civility.
An accomplished writer and composer, Blakely has written 19 books and released 13 albums. One of his co-written tunes was on a Grammy Award-winning album by Flaco Jimenez in 1995 and another played on the International Space Station in 2007.
Copies of “A Sinister Splendor” will be available for purchase and signing.
