I'm happy to report that the Lone Star Cowboy Poetry Gathering returned in person in February 2022 after a pandemic layoff. Once again in Alpine, hearty live crowds enjoyed the distinctive style of authentic cowboy poetry, music, and story-telling. And kudos to the organization (I'm a Partner member) for keeping that spirit alive with a virtual gathering in 2021. For more information, you can go here. I should mention that some events in The Lost Mine Trail, third book in the Big Bend Country mystery series, occur at an imaginary poetry gathering.
