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.

Travelling Lady - Horton Foote

The Travelling Lady. [Theatrical play].

By Horton Foote.

Charles Isherwood in the New York Times March 6 issue reviews this New York production of Mr. Foote’s 1954 script. Foote is one of Texas’ most renowned playwrights. This revival began in 2005 at Baylor University and was supported by the Horton Foote Society.

Foote’s “Trip to Bountiful,” possibly his most popular work, is also currently on stage in the Big Apple. Well, for that matter, there was a recent production there of Steve Earle's play, "Karla," a story about Karla Faye Tucker, the first woman to travel to execution in Texas since the Civil War.
