The Bookshelf, The Parlor, The Young Texas Reader, and the Monthly

The Texas Bookshelf is different from the The Texas Parlor, . The Texas Parlor carries "general" bookish information and non-book information and even different Texana news and notes of use to the bibliographically challenged and other nosey folks intersted in historical, literary, and cultural observations. Will's Texana Monthly may carry material from either blog, but extends itself beyond those, especially for longer compilations or treatments. The Monthly, the Bookshelf and the Parlor are all companions. So, is the Young Texas Reader which specialized on books and such things for the youngest to the teenagers.

 "Our primary means of promotion is the production of the annual Texas Poetry Calendar, now in its twelfth year, a continuation of the fine calendars that Flying Cow Productions originally produced. We also offer a series of readings each year to introduce the public to the work of the poets in each calendar."
