On October 26, the Foundation hosted its 10th and final annual San Antonio Express-News Children’s Book and Author Celebration, one of our many outreach efforts that speaks to the fundamental principles of early childhood development.
More than 150 children and adults gathered at Tripoint for a morning filled with learning and literature coming to life. Jennifer Ziegler, Brian Yansky, Tracy Deebs and Courtney Sheinmel wowed the crowds with stories on how their writing careers came to be and what continues to inspire them. Barbara B. Gentry, former USAA Foundation President, once again served as our emcee and Honorary Chair. This event will be folded into the San Antonio Book Festival.
