The Mayor’s Book Club was created by Mayor Ivy R. Taylor to cultivate a community experience through reading and discussion. This spring’s book selection is The Train to Crystal City by New York Times’ bestselling author and San Antonio local Jan Jarobe Russell. The book is a dramatic and never-before-told story of a secret FDR-approved American internment camp in Texas during World War II, where thousands of families—many US citizens—were incarcerated. Join Mayor Taylor in reading The Train to Crystal City and participate in discussions and events that focus on the themes of the book at your local library location. Take part in the Mayor’s Book Club and encourage others to join you.
