A Decade at the Helm

For founding editor Beverly Purcell-Guerra, the 10th anniversary of SAN ANTONIO WOMAN is a deeply gratifying experience.”That we are still publishing after 10 years gives me a wonderful sense of accomplishment and satisfaction,” she says. “We have been able to cover so many aspects of the community and to help a lot of women understand other women’s lives and issues of importance. I am fortunate to have been involved with this magazine from the start.” That start was sudden and swift. A former editor for several San Antonio Express-News publications, Purcell-Guerra was serving as a volunteer advisory board member...

Golden Wok

The dim sum tradition, ancient in China, is almost absent in San Antonio. True, potstickers seem to have propagated throughout Asian restaurants of every stripe, and spring rolls are everywhere you turn.
