History in the making?

If you’re wondering who are the “10 Women We Love” in the February issue of Austin Monthly, here they are: Shawn Colvin, Donna Stockton-Hicks, Jody Conradt, Debi O’Keefe, Karen Kuykendall, Dot Hewitt (of Dot’s Place), Rachel Muir, Gloria Perez-Walker (of Latina Mami), Carolyn Pfeiffer, and Toby Futrell.

In the February issue, at least, among what the reader is getting, in addition to 20 pages or so of editorial copy and advertising on “22 of the Hottest Cosmetic Procedures in Austin,” are an entertaining interview with Liz Carpenter and a charming little piece on two of the long-time waitresses at the Frisco Shop.

This handsomely produced publication, printed on slick coated paper and with excellent photography, sells individually for $2.95 an issue. For some reason it has begun arriving in the mail although we have not subscribed.

Years ago, I sold my complete run of Third Coast magazine to Half Price Books, instead of depositing it with the Austin History Center, as I should have done. Now I save Austin ephemera and go the History Center and ask before I toss or sell, because the originators of what makes Austin Austin don’t always think to make sure that evidence of their existence is saved for posterity.
