Meet the Author: Ed Crowell (‘Barton Creek’)

While Barton Springs Pool is an iconic landmark of Austin and many people are familiar with the end of Barton Creek and its seven miles of public greenbelt, less is known about the forty-odd miles beyond that tumble and twist across private lands, eventually feeding the Colorado River. Join the Austin History Center and local author Ed Crowell for a discussion about his latest book, ‘Barton Creek’, and the story of the land through which the creek flows. A book signing will follow the event and light refreshments will be served. The event is free and open to the public. ED CROWELL is a journalist and freelance writer. During his tenure at the Austin American-Statesman, he served as city editor, state editor, and features editor. ALBERTO MARTINEZ is an Austin artist and photographer who also worked at the newspaper.
