Join us for a celebration
Get ready for a party! Tonight we're celebrating Austin's own Reagan High School with author and journalist Michael Brick, who tells the school's story in his new book Saving The School. The Reagan High marching band will perform in our parking lot at 6:45pm. Afterwards, we'll head up to our second floor where Michael will speak about his book. We'll have student art work on display, special guests from the school and more cheer than you'll find at any pep rally in America! Don't miss it!
About Saving The School: Being principal was never her dream. Anabel Garza, the young widow of a young cop, got by teaching English to immigrant children, taking college classes at night and raising her son.
Michael Brick, 38, graduated from a public high school in Farmers Branch, Texas. As a reporter for The New York Times, he filed feature stories from Alaska to Mexico, but mostly Brooklyn. He lives in Austin with his wife, Stacy (Reagan High ’93), and their children.
