Zwick will discuss what happened the first day she returned to the bookshop after Hurricane Ike struck on Sept. 13th, 2008, and her strategy to rebuild the store located in the Strand Historic Shopping District in downtown Galveston. This will probably be accompanied by photos of the damage to Galveston Bookshop.

Also featured in this segment will be interviews with several local non-fiction authors, including Dr. Stephen Curley from Texas A&M Galveston and Andrew Hall who specializes in local nautical history.

The Galveston segment will last an hour.
