Gleaned from the 2015 Robert Penn Warren Circle

 

Robert Penn Warren

Clarksville, TN – One of the highlights of my year as a writer is attending the Robert Penn Warren Circle meetings in April. Here in one location are many of the true authorities on the life of one of the greatest writers our country has yet to witness.

These are the people who have devoted large portions of their lives to studying the work of Robert Penn Warren, the only person to date who has won three Pulitzer Prizes among scores of other awards for his more than 60 books and scores of other publications.

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.
