Meet the Author: Monte Akers

For more than 130 years the Driskill Hotel has been the place to stay for visitors to Austin as well as at the center of Austin’s social and political scene. The Austin History Center, in partnership with the Austin History Center Association, will host local author Monte Akers, who will talk about his new book The Grande Dame of Austin: A History of the Driskill Hotel, published by the AHCA’s Waterloo Press. Akers will share some of his favorite stories from the book and a book signing will follow the event. Light refreshments will be served and the event is free and open to the public.
