Collectors Covey presents Becky Crouch Patterson: Luckenbach Texas - The Center of The Universe
Becky Crouch Patterson will give a talk and sign copies of her new book, Luckenbach Texas - The Center of The Universe.
The Center of The Universe, with a foreword by John Phillip Santos, tells the untold story about the inventors, imagineers, music makers and peacemakers, all of them revolutionaries with unstoppable imaginations and fiercely independent spirits who made up the colorful, vibrant fabric of Luckenbach, the biggest little town in Texas. Luckenbach Texas. The book covers in colorful detail the years Becky Patterson’s father, Hondo Crouch, bought the property and turned it into a historic music venue in the 1970s, the town’s German-Texas history of intellectual creativity, the Civil War tragedies it experienced and how Luckenbach – with the help of Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Jeff Walker and Gary P. Nunn and a handful of Hondo’s poet songwriter friends – was a scene that gave rise to Texas Outlaw music of the 1970s.
