EDINBURG – David Rice, author of Give the Pig A Chance, and Heart-Shaped Cookies and Other Stories will host a reading and book signing on Thursday, August 18, at 6 p.m. at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library located on 1906 S. Closner Blvd. in Edinburg. The Edinburg Chamber of Commerce is also a partner in this endeavor and is happy to participate and support local authors.

Rice will be reading from his newly published book titled Heart-Shaped Cookies and Other Stories.

"Although David Rice has lived in Austin, Texas, for the past 20 years, he always manages to leave his heart in the valley; he calls Edcouch his home, and is always happy to return to the RGV to share his work as a writer, educator, and friend to many. As a compulsive story teller, Rice has several published novels including Crazy Loco, Give a Pig A Chance and other stories, and now Heart Shaped Cookies and Other Stories. Rice has also given his time to film media and recently filmed "Gone Hollywood" and "Scavengers" in the RGV and worked alongside Valente Rodriguez during the filming process".

Here is one book review:


The reading and book signing is free to the public, and all are encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be served, and we ask that you please RSVP your attendance by calling 956-383-6246.

"I will have books for sale and 10 percent of the proceeds go to the library. Books sell for $15. Also, I am happy to say, the baker on the cover of the book is Mr. Davila, the owner of La Mexicana Panadaria in Elsa and in Edinburg. Thank you all for you support and friendship" noted Rice.
