About Your Provocateur: Jo Snider

Jo is a retired faculty member from Texas State University’s Department of History. She specialized in teaching introductory courses in the theater setting, which basically means she knows a lot about a lot of things. For her BA, Jo had a double major in History and English, and an English minor on the MA level. Since her focus has been Texas and the Old South, a book club on Texas authors seemed a natural. Please join us for some fun, entertainment, and enlightenment from the Texas literati.
