March 04, 2017 7:00 PM - 30th Anniversary Event

                  The Art Museum of SouthTexas.

We are pleased to announce our 30th anniversary event featuring Stephen Harrigan and Bret Anthony Johnston in a panel performance moderated by Don Graham. Join us for a lively evening as three Texas luminaries discuss Southwestern literature and the influence of great Texas voices. Learn how growing up in the multicultural Corpus Christi community, along with the influences of family and teachers, led them to the writer's life.   


You can also follow us on Facebook at Corpus Christi Literary Reading Series.

Join as a patron and get to meet the author at an informal dinner the day before the reading.

“If you want one thing too much it’s likely to be a disappointment. The healthy way is to learn to like the everyday things, like soft beds and buttermilk—and feisty gentlemen.” ― Larry McMurtry, Lonesome Dove

What is CCLRS? 

The Corpus Christi literary Reading series is a grassroots reading series started in 1987 to provide a forum to celebrate reading. Twice a year we host a reading by a note-worthy contemporary author.

The Art Museum of South Texas auditorium provides a congenial venue for the reading, which typically attracts an audience of about 150. The night before each reading, patrons have the opportunity to visit and dine with the author at a private reception.
