“The Mayor’s Book Club is a great way to advocate literacy and promote a sense of community through a shared experience. We are happy to announce that Jesymn Ward’s novel “Salvage the Bones” is this year’s selection and are thrilled that Ms. Ward will be joining us in Austin to kick off our  11th annual event." - Mayor Leffingwell
