    Newscast: Authors Share Their Global Odyssey

The Global Odyssey exhibition draws from the material at the Wittliff Collections to examine how generations of the state’s writers have journeyed across the world, encountering a variety of experiences that have inspired their creativity while at the same time underscoring their distinctive heritage as Texans.

Samantha Snell a media relations & publications assistant at the Wittliff collections talks about one of the panelists and how her views have changed since traveling across the world.

”It’s important just because it shows how different culture’s affects all their works differently. I know one of our panelist Stephanie, she’s from Texas, she went to Russia, China , all over and I’ve even spoken with her once before and just gives you a whole new perspective. Everything she thought she knew changed as a whole, so its important for kids to understand to not be so set on what they think is right before you go study it in other cultures”
– Samantha Snell

This conversation with the four authors will go about discussing the places they have visited and the kind of impact it’s had on their writing through a chicana/chicano perspective. The Event is free and open to the public at 6:30 pm, their books will be available for purchase and a book signing will follow the program.
