TSLAC Speaker Series with Sherry Matthews
Sherry Matthews, author of We Were Not Orphans, Stories from the Waco State Home, kicks off our Fall Speaker Series.
WE WERE NOT ORPHANS: Stories from the Waco State Home, (University of Texas Press February 2011) is Matthews' first book. Matthews first became aware of the Waco State Home at age three, when, after a series of family tragedies, her three older brothers were taken there to live. Half a century later, she attended a reunion of the Waco State Home with her only surviving brother and decided to publish a book of alumni stories as a gift to the ex-students' association.
