Diamond Grove Slave Tree
by Xavier Cavazos

Our back room can accommodate about 25 people and is suitable for small readings, signings and performances. And the front seating area is flexible and has been used for events as well. If the event is a money-making venture, we'll charge a little rent, but if it's just a meeting, we're happy to make the room available to the community.
