20230301 MOSTH house built on ashes book cover image webThe Museum of South Texas History invites the community to the first-ever meeting of Pages of the Past book club at 7 p.m., April 5.

Participants are encouraged to read the first book selection titled “House Built on Ashes” by José Antonio Rodriguez. During the evening, museum staff and participants will engage in a book discussion and brainstorm about the book club followed by an after-hours tour of the museum.

As this is the inaugural meeting, museum staff will ask attendees to provide feedback on how the club should move forward. Questions include: How often should it meet? Should the number of participants be limited? Any suggestions for future titles to read? Book suggestions should be related to the museum’s mission to “preserve and present the borderland heritage of South Texas and northeastern Mexico for all generations.”

If you would like to assist in forming the book club from the ground up, pre-registration is required. Register online at or call (956) 383-6911 by March 31.

MOSTH is located downtown Edinburg at 200 North Closner Boulevard on the Hidalgo County Courthouse square. For more information visit, like us on Facebook and Instagram, follow on Twitter, or find on YouTube.
