Worth Repeating: A new book from Trinity University Press presents 40 stories from TPR's storytelling event series

Ways To Subscribe

Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live storytelling event series. It became a TPR podcast and is now a book.

Trinity University Press and TPR have collaborated to produce Worth Repeating: San Antonio Stories, a book featuring forty narratives taken from the stage to the page.

Public radio listeners are likely familiar with the format of curated storytelling. There is the popular program, The Moth, for example. Worth Repeating is similar to that effort, but the difference is important. Worth Repeating is a reflection of San Antonio. It’s soaked in South Texas vibes, references, history and culture.

While documenting and capturing the elements of a fast-growing city like San Antonio, writers in this anthology also share life lessons.
