Robert Godwin has been covering the non-profit scene in Austin from the time of blue jeans and backyard barbeques to the black-tie galas of today. With over 20,000 events recorded by word and photo, Godwin leads the leagues in rubber chicken consumption. As a constant witness to the power of publicity, he now seeks to enlist a legion of assistants by sharing his knowledge of the publicity process.
Remembering the Republic of Austin
Oh, those were the days, when parking downtown was nothing more than tossing your horse’s reins around a hitching post and hurrying home for dinner required dodging a only a few arrows instead of thousands of cars. Jeffrey Kerr, author of The Republic of Austin, brought those days back to life in the two dozen stories of exciting times in Austin between 1832 and 1844. On this evening, his telling the stories of the infamous “Pig War” and that of Josiah Wilbarger kept guests glued to their chairs. Kerr has the wonderful ability to be both educational and entertaining. Adding to the historic evening was the cuisine of 2Dine4 using adapted 19th century recipes from the Governor’s Mansion–a sensational meal showcasing the variety of our amazing state.
Hosted by Martha & Richard Coons
