Barefoot Dogs


We are very pleased to present Austin author and graduate of the New Writers Program at the University of Texas, Antonio Ruiz-Camacho, to read from his celebrated debut story collection, Barefoot Dogs. These linked stories follow the members and retinue of a wealthy Mexican family forced into exile after the patriarch is kidnapped. Join us this evening as we celebrfate an exciting new literary voice!

"Each of these stories is a straight-on jab to the soul, the kind of sharp fictional punch that wakes us up to our own flawed, fragile, essential humanity."
- Ben Fountain
