When I read a book, especially one about an interesting figure like Ann Richards, I always wish I could have a conversation with the author and ask them all of the questions I have swimming around in my head after finishing the book….
Lucky for us, we get to do just that Wednesday, May 29th!!!! Your chance to ask Jan Reid your questions, give him your comments, and discuss anything and everything Ann Richards is one week away!

There is still time to finish the book, but if you want to make sure Jan Reid answers your questions, post them below in the comments section.
Let’s hear what the first online book group devoted to Texas History has to say about Let the People In.
do you think there was one compelling reason richards was not elected for a second term?
Thank you for the great question!
Speculation is dangerous, but do you think that if Ann was governor today she would be an environmentally aware and sage leader, putting the breaks on the insane wildfracking going on that threatens to leave large parts of Texas without drinkable water? Or would she have to cave in to petro boys or face gridlock?
Also, what do you think she might do about the Dobie Paisano Ranch trespass and destruction. It is state property. Would she bring he hammer down on the evildoers in a public way? Hope to see you before too long. Looking forward to tomorrow night. That is one mighty fine book. Well done. Sincerely, Jim Bones
Thank you for the wonderful questions! I’m anxious to hear what Jan Reid has to say tomorrow night!
In your view, what is Ms Richards most enduring political legacy?
