An author who wrote a book on a South Texas area close to many Laredoans' hearts gave a presentation on Thursday night.
Beatriz de la Garza wrote "From the Republic of the Rio Grande, A Personal History of the Place and the People." In it, she traces her personal family stories of leaving their ancestral home as a child and coming to Laredo.
The book also entails a brief history of the region known as the Republic of the Rio Grande.
There was a book signing after the presentation sponsored by the Webb County Heritage Foundation.
