Dobie Dichos: Friday, November 3, 2023
Dr. Hardin will once again be speaking at Dobie Dichos in the historic community of Oakville, Texas. The annual event (always the first Friday in November) celebrates the life and legacy of folklorist J. Frank Dobie (1888-1964), a proud native of Live Oak County. Texas author W.K. Stratton captured the essence of the event:
Being part of Dobie Dichos was without question a high point in my literary career. There was something at once magical yet very real about gathering with so many good people under a starlit sky in a clearing in the Brush Country to celebrate one of the important voices of Texas literature.
Dr. Hardin will be speaking on Dobie’s unpublished (rather bawdy) “Piss & Vinegar” Collection. He notes, “So, if you find yourself in South Texas, consider throwin’ in. The chili will be well-seasoned, the music spirited, the speakers sprightly, and the fellowship sensational. You could find worse ways to spend a Friday night.”
