Join Mission Historical Museum (MHM) for sweets and light refreshments as they present their Lecture Series on February 8 at 11 a.m.
You might call W.F. Strong a student of all things Texas. In 2010, he began sharing his Stories from Texas vignettes on NPR stations, most recently on the Texas Standard's network of 30 stations. Celebrating his home state, Strong has collected 75 of his broadcasts. You’ll hear his inimitably Texan voice in your mind’s ear as he weaves stories on subjects ranging from how to talk Texan to Texas bards and troubadours; from tall Texas tales to Lone Star icons like Charles Goodnight, Tom Landry and Blue Bell ice cream; from legends and heroes of the past to some heartfelt memories of his own.
W.F. Strong is a Professor of Communication and Culture and a Fulbright Scholar at The University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley. He also writes, occasionally, for Texas Highways Magazine.
