For over 40 years, the Therese Kayser Lindsey Endowment has been bringing world-renowned writers and scholars to campus to read, answer questions, and discuss literature. Now, in collaboration with the Katherine Anne Porter Literary Center and Texas State University’s English Department and Wittliff Collections, all of these recorded events have been remastered and digitally preserved for the public in a collection unlike any before. Here, you’ll find readings from Nobel Laureates, National Book Award Winners, Pulitzer Prize winners, and winners of pretty much every prize and accolade the literary community bestows upon its members. Front Porch Journal is proud to be the official home of this archive.
