Book reading and signing: Bragging Rights: The Dallas-Houston Rivalry by Carolyn Kneese and John DeMers
Is the great state of Texas big enough to encompass the personality and pride of its two greatest cities? As the world turns its attention to emergent cities, Houston finds itself in the spotlight, and the age-old I-45 rivalry has reemerged as a hot topic in print and parlor. With self-described dual-citizenship of these Texas towns, and with family living in both cities, Carolyn Kneese set out to determine the basis of the rivalry. What is it about each place that makes its citizens so proud?
She teamed up with Lynn Ashby and John DeMers, respected journalists who have worked both towns, and surveyed the people who make each town great. With opinions from taste-makers and power brokers from every sector of both towns, Bragging Rights determines definitively that whether you hang your hat in Houston, dwell in Dallas, or just wonder what the fuss is about.
