Author Event

Thursday, November 3, 2022

Visiting all the way from Europe, historical fiction writer Barbara Ortwein will be at Huntsville Public Library to discuss her Texas trilogy on Thursday, November 3 at 5:00 p.m. The trilogy, which includes Between Worlds, Never to Return; In the Heart of Texas, But Not Yet at Home; and At Journey’s End: Texans Forever!, tells the story of the fictional Engelbach family of Hesse and their German compatriots’ emigration to the Texas Hill Country. Ortwein weaves these fictional characters into the story of the actual people involved in the historical emigration and settlement of the area. During her presentation, she will lead the audience in a sing-along, with her guitar accompaniment, of German and English songs relevant to her books’ themes.
