The first reviews for Tomlinson Hill are coming in, and they’ve been very positive so far.
Publisher’s Weekly calls the book “an engaging and poignant look into his own past but also a riveting glimpse of the history of race relations in Texas.” Read the full review here.
Booklist, the American Library Association’s trade magazine, said: “Tomlinson turns his journalist’s acute eye on his own family background to present an unflinching look at the racial history of one small Texas community.” It hasn’t been posted online yet.
This is good early news, but you can decide for yourself. Pre-order a copy of the book from one of the links found here.
We also have an Austin screening of the film along with a book signing planned for Aug. 21 at the Carver Center in East Austin. Come get a double dose of the book, which is about the Hill’s history, and the film, which focuses on present-day Marlin. Details here.
After seven years of hard work, I’m thrilled to finally share it with you. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possble.
