Miraflores Shines on TPR
If you're a Texas Public Radio fan, then you probably heard Jack Morgan's story on Miraflores this past Friday. As of today, over 6000-plus people have listened to the segment!
Jack interviewed me a few weeks ago, along with Lynn Bobbitt of the Brackenridge Park Conservancy and expertly wove together an overview of family history and current efforts at the garden.
I was immediately impressed with Jack's pronunciation of "Aureliano Urrutia." If you don't know how to say it, give it a listen and you'll learn. I'm also very pleased that Jack's story reflects an evolving understanding of Urrutia and Miraflores. It's a 5 minute snapshot, but the strong response shows that many people are interested, and that's great news.
The segment also drove some renewed interest in my original article on Miraflores, published in the Rivard Report, which you might want to check out for more detail on the history aspect. My upcoming book will take readers even further into the garden as it was when Urrutia created it. Muchísimas gracias to Jack Morgan and Texas Public Radio for spreading the word on Miraflores.
