“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.
