The Robert Penn Warren Circle meetings have moved to Clarksville now after having for years met part of the time at Western Kentucky University and then moving to Austin Peay State University and on to Guthrie, Kentucky for the Saturday luncheon and visit to the Robert Penn Warren Birthplace Museum.
