The 2010 Texas Poet Laureate hit the road in September 2009, traveling to middle and high schools across the state, showing students the importance of writing and asking them to create something beautiful that accurately represented their town. From grandma’s mustang jelly and Leddy’s custom boots to forgotten railroads in Haslet, Friday night football, and even Mexican pride, Morton and her newly discovered creative writers do not miss a thing about the beloved small towns of Texas.
A great coffee table read, Hometown, Texas includes fabulous artwork drawn by talented students, giving a glimpse into the best of their hometowns. In this eclectic selection, the reader will easily turn page after page to learn a little something more about Texas from the Texan youth. The poetry is simple and authentic, allowing readers to fall in love with Texas all over again.
