Booktalk: Kimberly Garza’s “The Last Karankawas”

Kimberly Garza’s debut novel, “The Last Karankawas” explores modern, diverse south Texas.

She takes readers to the salty aired streets of Galveston where a tight-knit community of Mexican and Filipino American families who live on the Texas coast.

When word spreads of an approaching storm named Hurricane Ike, each Galveston resident is forced to decide: abandon their hard-won home and flee inland, or board up the windows and hunker down.

Born in Galveston, raised in Uvalde, Kimberly is an assistant professor of creative writing and literature at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
