The View from Grapevine

By R.B. Moreno

Day two of the 2009 Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference in Grapevine, Texas is underway. This being The Lone Star State, the grounds of the resort hosting the gathering lead to a warren of horse trails. There the jets bound for DFW seem to outnumber the dragonflies buzzing overhead.

Some attendees spent Friday in nearby Archer City, the hometown of author Larry McMurtry. Last night's opening address from Paul Theroux, another prolific writer and a former Peace Corps volunteer, finished with the line "leave home, tell the truth, you'll be all right."
