Writers Forum on South Padre Island

Mix diverse topics, creative writers and a knowledgeable guest speaker, stir in laughter and companionship and the final product - a fun evening at the Writers' Forum at Paragraphs on Padre Blvd.

Steve Hathcock, a well-known Rio Grande Valley historian and treasure hunter, introduced his new website, www.southpadretv.tv. Filled with South Padre stories Steve has written over the years, the site offers readers the opportunity to learn about local happenings, historical events and the unique characters who have called the island "home."

Check it out and plan to spend some time browsing. If you have a question about the island, Steve can probably answer it or, if not, find the person who can.

After Steve's presentation, attendees read from their work. We covered colorful recollections of childhood in the 1940s, ghostly stories, recipes, the Coast Guard, Billy Boomerang of South Padre Island and cinematographer John Bax.

The Writers' Forum is the 4th Monday of every month from 7:00 - 9:00.
