Hyper-local history series
“Meet me at Hudspeth’s Corner”
Thanks to everyone who made our launch so successful. We loved bringing the story of Essie Mae Barton to 21st century readers, and in February, we’ll follow up with the story of her sister-in-law, Vera. We are now taking a short break. We are suspending orders of the Hudspeth’s Corner zine (by Scott Henson, with illustrations by Lakeem Wilson) until December 9, 2023, but will ramp back up in time for Christmas giving! Thanks for your support!
Meet me at Hudspeth’s Corner
GFB Publishing’s first zine tells forgotten stories surrounding a century-old corner grocery store and the rise and fall of a black-owned, segregation-era family business empire in central East Austin’s Chestnut neighborhood. NOTE! All orders as of Aug. 19th have been sent out and new orders suspended. We will begin to mail out zines again in December, in time for Christmas, while we work on the next zine! There’s a LOT more to come about the history of the Chestnut neighborhood in East Austin!
