February 13, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Get an insider’s look at an ATX icon

Join IABC Austin at the Broken Spoke (yes, that Broken Spoke) and find out how longtime journalism teacher Donna Marie Miller turned her passion for the honky-tonk into a book deal.

Get inspired about the power of storytelling and hear some thrilling tales about Austin’s legendary dance hall, the Broken Spoke, at IABC‘s Feb. 13 luncheon. Experience an insider’s look (and their famous chicken-fried fare) at the iconic honky-tonk.

Donna Marie Miller, author of the book The Broken Spoke: Austin’s Legendary Honky-Tonk, along with Broken Spoke owner and founder James White, will share stories about the Austin icon while you enjoy lunch. Musician, singer and actor Ben Stafford Rodgers will perform cowboy ballads at the luncheon.

Your ticket includes lunch, program and entertainment. Miller also will sell and sign copies of her book for $28 cash or check. If you are looking for a unique Valentine’s gift for your favorite Austinite, look no further! Miller also will share insights about following her dream of writing a book, and how she applied her journalism career to the task. Join us!
