We’re proud to announce that the Guest of Honor for Howard Days 2016 is Michael Scott Myers, the screenwriter for the movie The Whole Wide World. Michael’s importance as our GOH is especially great for all of us, as he was also a student of Novalyne Price Ellis. Here’s hoping you’ll be amongst us to hear not only Michael’s revelations about TWWW but also his reminisces of Novalyne and her magnificent memoir of her relationship with Robert E. Howard.

All of the usual activities connected with Howard Days are in place: the Robert E. Howard Museum and Gift Shop are open to all, the adjacent Alla Ray Morris Pavilion is available for the Swap Meet, gaming, extemporaneous activities, and a couple of genuine Texas cook-outs, the Bus Tour of Cross Plains and surrounding environs, a special Postal Cancellation souvenir, the Celebration Banquet and Silent Auction, interesting panels on Howard and related topics, the Robert E. Howard Foundation Awards – all this plus much more that we can’t think of right now! We’ll be posting detailed information over the course of the next month.
