Authors and storytellers influenced by J. Frank Dobie are invited each year to participate in Dobie Dichos, where they read a story from one of Dobie’s works or read a piece inspired by his works. Prior to the program, a meal of chili, pan de campo (camp bread), dessert, and water are served for those who purchase meal and performance tickets. (Program-only tickets are also for sale.) Beer is available, and live acoustic music is played on the stage before storytelling starts. Bring your lawn chairs to sit under the stars and enjoy the campfire while listening to the words of—or words influenced by—J. Frank Dobie.
