Turning Texas Blue

Turning Texas Blue: What it Will Take to Break the GOP Grip on America’s Reddest State

Join us Thursday, April 21st for an evening of political discussion as Mary Beth Rogers, best-selling author and the last person to run a successful campaign to put a Democrat, Ann Richards, in the governor’s office, talks about how Democrats can punch holes in the big red political bubble that has covered Texas for 25 years. Change won’t come easily, says Rogers. But if Texas shifts to even a pale shade of purple, it changes everything in American politics today. This is going to be a fascinating conversation – don’t miss it!

Our meeting will be held at Los Tios Restaurant, 4840 Beechnut St. The dutch treat meal will begin at 6pm, with presentation and discussion to begin at 7pm.

We encourage anyone who would like to attend to RSVP, as this has the makings of a very popular and useful event in our ramp-up toward turning out the vote this November!

Mary Beth Rogers book, Turning Texas Blue, will be available for purchase and signing at the event for books that are reserved with your RSVP. The cost of the book is $26.99 ($29.22 including tax).
