Continuing the Conversation

Welcome to the Texas Talking Book Program blog!

Do you want to know what staff at the Talking Book Program have read and enjoyed recently? Do you think to yourself, “I really like Louis L’Amour, but I don’t know who to read next”? Do you wonder, “What’s new on the shelf at the Talking Book Program? Is the Public Awareness Coordinator going to be in my neighborhood soon? What sort of information can I get from the Disability Reference Center?” Follow our blog for answers to all of these questions, and more.

Quite a few of our staff will be blogging as we go along, though you’ll see a few names more frequently. We will have a few regular posting topics that will appear weekly or monthly, along with some one-timers.

We look forward to sharing information about the Talking Book Program with you and to hearing back from you either in the comments section below or e-mail us at tbp.ral@tsl.texas.gov. TBP staff are a friendly bunch and ask that comments be kept friendly.
