Book Signing to be held with Senator Leticia Van de Putte and Professor Sharon Navarro

(SAN ANTONIO, TX) -- On Wednesday, November 12, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, Senator Leticia Van de Putte (D-San Antonio) and Dr. Sharon Navarro, UTSA political science professor, will be available to sign copies of Latina Legislator: Leticia Van de Putte and the Road to Leadership, authored by Navarro.

The event will be held at the Central Library Auditorium, located at 600 Soledad, and is being sponsored by Dr. Ricardo Romo, President of The University of Texas at San Antonio, and the San Antonio Public Library Foundation.

Dr. Navarro said, "This book contributes to an area that has not yet been examined. The book highlights a case study of one successful Latina leader and the role her family plays in her success."

"I am humbled and honored to have been chosen as the subject of Dr. Navarro's case study," said Senator Van de Putte. "Her research adds valuable insight into the social and political implications of the changing demographics in Texas and the United States."

The event is open to media.
