“Goodnight San Antonio” Launches This Spring
San Antonio, TEXAS (Jan. 30, 2013) – “Goodnight San Antonio,” a 40-page hardcover book by Jennifer Gaines Drez, brings the culture of San Antonio to a story time near you. The words combined with the vibrant illustrations by Lisa Carrington Voight are geared toward children, but fitting for all ages. The book takes the reader on a colorful trip around the city saying “Goodnight” to San Antonio’s museums, sports teams, historical landmarks and favorite spots.
“Goodnight San Antonio”, Published by JGD Publishing, LLC, entertains and captivates audiences with the nostalgia of this cultured city. Available in March through www.goodnightsanantonio.com, local museum gift shops and retail establishments, “Goodnight San Antonio” is a fun and memorable book for San Antonians and/or visitors simply looking for a memento from a trip to the “city of fiestas.”
Drez, a mother of young children, has co-authored another book, “Goodnight Cowtown,” highlighting the many attributes of Fort Worth (www.goodnightcowtown.com). With family ties to San Antonio and a special affinity for the unique city, Drez wanted to create a book that acknowledged all of the amazing cultural institutions, historical landmarks and places that make San Antonio so endearing. “Goodnight San Antonio” entertains children while educating them about the culture and history of the city.
“Having spent a good part of my childhood in San Antonio, I have always had a special place in my heart for the city,” said Drez. “As I continue to visit, now with children of my own, I thought that a book about the city would help to educate children and adults alike about the history and the wonderful things San Antonio offers.”
