Thursday, March 26 at 7pm Authors Ted Estess and Sybil Pittman Estess. Ted
Estess, University of Houston Honors College Founding Dean, will
read from his latest book, Fishing Spirit Lake. Ted
Estess tells stories not just about the South or fishing or
fatherhood or loss but also about the pattern of a life... stories in which we can find both the

whole. Sybil Pittman Estess, nominated for Poet
Laureate of Texas in 2009 and 2015, will read from her new book of
poetry, Like That: New and Selected Poems.
