Randy Fritz at Texas Book Festival
Trinity University Press is proud to have Randy Fritz and his book Hail of Fire represented at this year's Texas Book Festival along with Enchiladas: Aztec to Tex-Mex by Cappy Lawton and Chris Waters Dunn, The Luck Archive by Mark Menjivar, and A Muse and A Maze by Peter Turchi.
Join authors David Ulin and Randy Fritz as they talk about the ways in which Los Angeles and Texas shaped who they are and who they continue to become.
Hail of Fire: A Man and His Family Face Natural Disaster is an intimate account of the third worst wildfire in modern U.S. history, and the most destructive in the history of Texas. It is a memoir of what happened to Randy Fritz, an artist turned politician turned public policy leader, and his family during and after the Bastrop County Complex fire in 2011. Combining a searing account of the fire as it grew to apocalyptic strength with universal themes of loss and grief, Fritz gives a first-person account of the emotional turmoil that comes with rebuilding one’s life after a calamitous event.
