Brown Bag Lecture: Texas Landmark Cafes with June Naylor

Hall of State at Fair Park

Come hear June Naylor, award-winning travel writer and native Texan discuss her book Texas Landmark Cafes. The book describes what knowledgeable locals have long known about their best diners, steak houses, barbecues and seafood joints, from El Paso to Longview, and what to order when you get there. What the critics say: “You’ll never go hungry if you pack this book, which covers the state’s four major good groups: barbecue, steaks, Tex-Mex and pie.” – Dallas Morning News “No matter what part of the state you’re headed for, this cute and handy new guide has you covered with capsule descriptions and ordering suggestions.” – Fort Worth Star-Telegram
