    Karl Rove Visits Friends and Speaks to a Packed House at Querencia at Barton Creek

    It was a packed house as residents of Querencia at Barton Creek recently gathered to hear Karl Rove, former Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush, speak. Residents also had the opportunity to purchase Rove’s bestselling book, “Courage and Consequence” and have it signed by him while asking questions after the presentation.

    “It was a true honor to have Karl Rove speak here at Querencia,” said Nate Weyand, executive director of Querencia. “He is a political legend, and it was a real pleasure to get to hear him talk in such an intimate setting. He is a fascinating man who is full of interesting stories.”

    Rove has over two decades of experience in the political arena. He is an iconic political strategist and has provocative and robust knowledge of the major political issues of today. Rove is a bestselling author of “Courage and Consequence” and is a Fox News Contributor and a Wall Street Journal Columnist.

    Rove is friends with Querencia residents Terry Townsend and Jack Puryear. Rove stayed after the presentation to sign over 50 copies of his book and chatted with all residents who stayed to talk to him.
