A Uvalde native and assistant professor of creative writing and literature at UTSA, Kimberly Garza will be presenting her first novel, The Last Karankawas. The novel follows a family in Galveston descended from the extinct Karankawa tribe and their tight-nit relationships on the eve of Hurricane Ike’s destructive path.

“I’ve loved the Texas Book Festival since I first attended as a UT student, spending money I didn’t have to buy signed books,” Garza said. “I’m honored to be an invited author this year! I hope readers connect with the unsung corners of Texas in my novel — Galveston, Brownsville, and my hometown of Uvalde — and the characters’ struggles with belonging and home.”
