The Bookshelf, Young Texas Reader, Blog Notes, & Texana Youtube Channel

The Texas Bookshelf is for single, specific books' reviews and author interviews . The Texas Parlor ranges more broadly than my other websites. The Young Texas Reader focuses on the youngest through teenagers. Texas Blog Notes surveys blogs of historical and literary interest. I've started a Will's Texana Youtube collecting channel where 1,000 videos are collected in 100 playlists . Find Will in Houston or at willstexana {at} yahoodotcom

Texana Foundation

From their webpage we learn -
"The Texana Foundation is a Texas non-profit corporation that encourages interest and excellence in Texas non-fiction.

Formed in 2007, the foundation is funded through public and private contributions, grants, event revenues and book sales. The foundation is tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3), and qualified contributions to the foundation are tax-deductible under relevant sections of the Code.

The foundation is the owner of Mockingbird Books, a publisher of Texas non-fiction, and is the sponsor of Texas Non-Fiction Writers, which supports writers with networking, newsletters and conferences. The foundation also coaches writers (including young writers) and hosts innovative book events that explore the rich heritage and culture of Texas.

The foundation's premiere upcoming event, hosted through Texas Non-Fiction Writers, is the Texas Non-Fiction Writers' Retreat 2008 on October 24 and 25, 2008, in Boerne, Texas."
