Local Author Debuts Novel WITH San Antonio Public Library Foundation

THE SCENE: Supporters of the San Antonio Public Library Foundation recently gathered at the San Antonio Country Club to celebrate the regional literary community and the new novel by local author Gene Ames, Jr., A Wildcatters Trek: Love, Money and Oil. The novel tells the harrowing tale of Jordan Phillips, a young pipe salesman who risks everything to drill for oil in East Texas and discovers the largest oil field in the world…by accident.

THE VIBE: The venue was decorated in accordance with the Texan tales in Mr. Ames’ novel, including oil derrick centerpieces bedecked with yellow roses. Guests enjoyed a meal of wonderful cuisine and decadent desserts. Mr. Ames presented A Wildcatter’s Trek during the luncheon’s special program, then signed copies of the book afterward.

THE CAUSE: The event was co-chaired by past SAPLF Chairman Gene Ames, III, Elizabeth Ames Coleman, John Y. Ames, and Stephen Ames. Proceeds from the event benefitted The San Antonio Public Library Foundation, which promotes the power of books and the freedom a library can provide. The SAPLF believes in “bringing the writers to the people,” raising awareness for the library and bringing literature to the community by hosting live readings by notable people.
