Luncheon  ~  Noon - 1:15pm

The Angelina Eberly Luncheon, held each winter at Austin's historic Driskill Hotel, is the signature event of the Austin History Center Association. The luncheon brings together close to 200 guests ‐ business associates, coworkers and city leaders; as well as newcomers and longtime residents ‐ who share their love of Austin history at an event the Austin American‐Statesman has called "An Austin Tradition".

The 2017 Eberly Luncheon promises to be memorable, celebrating the 175th Anniversary of Angelina Eberly's famous cannon shot. Our keynote presentation features Michael BarnesAustin American-Statesman Columnist and Waterloo Press Author of Indelible Austin. Barnes will lead a panel presentation called "Other Voices, Other Times," drawn from his current book Indelible Austin and focusing on historical reflections on Austin's African-American, Asian-American, Latino and LGBT communities.

Barnes states, “History is remembered through the prism of personal experience. The memories of Austin's African-American, Asian-American, Latino and LGBT communities, by definition, differ in some ways from the most often told tales of our city. Our panel listens to other voices about other times.”

The 2017 luncheon's panelists will be Saundra Kirk, Lonnie Limon, and Evan Taniguchi.
