The THSC Event Calendar is a free service to homeschoolers in Texas. We hope you like it. It is designed to help homeschooling families, friends, and support groups take advantage of educational opportunities of interest to you.
For event sponsors: Your event venue must be in Texas and have a specific appeal to homeschoolers. All submissions are moderated by THSC. If you don’t see your event posted three business days after submission, please contact the Moderator at email@example.com. Thank you for your submissions and interest in supporting Texas home schoolers.

The recommendation for actual class dates is that they should be listed in the event description, not in the date field.
Erickson & Dahlstrom Apprenticeship Event
June 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Apprenticeship in Art: Two Writers
When: Tuesday, June 4, 2019, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Where: McDonald Moody Auditorium at Lubbock Christian University
Description: The career of beloved Texas writer John R. Erickson began in the turbulent 1960s at the University of Texas. He then moved on to Harvard Divinity School. Despite his early academic pedigree, he left academia to become a working cowboy back home and later became the internationally-known children’s author of the Hank the Cowdog series, which has sold over 9 million copies and has been courted by Disney. In his later years he shared his wisdom and experience in the craft of writing with Nathan (S.J.) Dahlstrom (’95) who has gone on to publish his own award-winning children’s series. This slow but deliberate apprenticeship in craft and art is a process too often left outside the academy but which began for Erickson and Dahlstrom in the pasture, on horseback and with a shared love of animals and physical labor. They will discuss their experience, how the process can be mutually beneficial and why it must continue.
