letter publisher 22 MISAEL RODRIGUEZ O ctober is my favorite time of year. We finally get a welcome reprieve from the oppressive summer heat, the leaves begin to change color, and dining al fresco becomes the norm. It's also one of our favorite months at the magazine, because with October comes our annual Dallas PaperCity Design Awards and Texas Design Week Dallas — a week-long celebration, beginning Monday, October 7, that's packed with salon talks, panel discussions, book signings, exhibitions, and cocktail parties held throughout the Dallas Design District. For Texas Design Week this year, we're bringing in some of the most recognized names in the design industry. Martyn Lawrence Bullard serves as emcee of the PaperCity Design Awards, held at the Joule hotel Wednesday, October 9, and gives a talk on Tuesday, October 8, at The Rug Company. You'll also want to save five days of dates to see Jeffrey Bilhuber, Tom Sheerer, Lisa Fine, Penny Morrison, Timothy Corrigan, David Kleinberg, Dean Rhys-Morgan, Carl Dellatore, Lance Scott, Caleb Anderson, Jay Jeffers, and Oliver Furth. For those eager to score a book deal, look no further than a panel discussion with Rizzoli senior editor Sandy Gilbert, legendary interiors photographer Pieter Estersohn, designer Cathy Kincaid, and architect Lee Ledbetter, moderated by book agent Chesie Breen, at Made Goods Showroom Friday, October 11. For tips on hosting with an eye toward design, Beverly Hills celebrity chef and event designer Alex Hitz signs his new book, The Art of the Host: Recipes and Rules for Flawless Entertaining, at Park House, also on Friday, October 11. We're also thrilled to welcome Architectural Digest editor in chief Amy Astley to town. You can meet her at Jan Showers Showroom Thursday, October 10. For tickets and a full schedule of events, go to Of course, we couldn't host any of the aforementioned events without our generous sponsors, Gaggenau, Bosch, Thermador, Dunhill Partners, Dallas Design District, the Joule, The Rug Company, Wells Abbott, The Shade Store, David Sutherland, Made Goods, Forty Five Ten, James Showroom, Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, Ralph Lauren, Jan Showers, Arteriors, Allan Knight, Ornare, and Christopher Martin Gallery. Indeed, a week of to-dos takes an army! Last but certainly not least, I want to wish our fearless leader, Christina Geyer, best wishes as she embarks on her next journey. While we have only worked together for a few short months, I've admired her for many years as she has quickly risen through the editorial ranks of some of the best media companies in town. At the age of 27, Christina was tapped as the youngest editor in chief of PaperCity Dallas, which tells you something about her immense talent, maturity, and drive. While it's bittersweet to see her go, I'm excited to watch her spread her wings. She will remain on the masthead as editor at large — because once you are part of the PaperCity family, you are always part of the PaperCity family. In the meantime, our solid Dallas editorial team will keep the magazine moving ahead, as we explore a new structure that involves our existing team and the addition of more talent. Happy fall to all!
