Horton Foote Society

Horton Foote Society 
Self-described as
"Mission:  Organized as a philanthropic organization, the Horton Foote Society promotes the study of the American playwright Horton Foote and his work through general intellectual inquiry and research, specific critical inquiry, academic conferences, popular and academic publications, public lectures, and the public presentation of plays. The purposes for organizing the corporation are educational and literary."
 "In 2002, a small group of scholars gathered to incorporate this new learned society in order to draw attention to the life's achievement of the highly acclaimed American playwright Horton Foote. You are cordially invited to join us in our pursuit of scholarly excellence in the study of modern American drama. More information about the society is on our "About the Society" page. Information about joining the Horton Foote Society can be found on our Horton Foote Society membership page."
Folks wishing to maintain an interest in Texas literature are encouraged to discover the remarkable quality and diversity of Foote's work and criticism.  Many of his works draw from his Texas home and rearing, but Foote also spent considerable time on other perspectives.  He's an American gem and a Texas literary star.
