Literary Texas
save list
Some of America's best loved authors hail from Texas—Katherine Anne Porter, O. Henry, and Larry McMurtry among them. Texas is also home to remarkable collections of literary treasures, from the Gutenberg Bible at the Ransom Center in Austin to the personal papers of the Brownings at Waco's Armstrong Browning Center. Book lovers will find myriad ways to indulge their passion: from children's picture books and Edgar Allen Poe to Conan the Barbarian—the written word is writ large in Texas.
