Passion, Art, Community: Denton, Texas in Word and Image

is the history of Denton, told in poems written by karla k. morton.
Karla was commissioned by The City of Denton Art Committee and The Greater Denton Arts Council to write the history of Denton, Texas in poetry. After the book was written, artists from the Denton community were commissioned to create art inspired by Morton’s poems.

“I am proud to call Denton, Texas home and so honoured
to have been selected to write its history.
I am especially excited that this book combines
poetry with work by so many local artists.”
