“Brother,” said St. Francis of Assisi to a young monk who had just entered the monastery, “let’s go to town and preach.” They left the monastery and walked to the town and did not say a word to each other or the people they passed in the marketplace. After several hours they retraced their steps and returned to the monastery.

Friday, June 10th and Saturday, June 11th will find well over 100 out-of-town guests coming to visit Cross Plains to soak up two days of all things Howard. Headquartered at the REH Museum at 625 West Highway 36, the annual two day conference will include panel discussions, tours of the Museum and the surrounding areas, a special postal cancellation, an award ceremony, and a silent auction of Howard related items. A few vendors will also be selling Howard related publications on the museum grounds. All of these events are free of charge to the public. Howard was an extremely prolific writer who lived in Cross Plains during his entire writing career before his death in June of 1936. Although he is probably best known for his Conan the Cimmerian stories, Howard also wrote poetry, western, detective and boxing stories, as well as creating numerous other characters: Solomon Kane, El Borak, King Kull, Bran Mak Morn, and his somewhat bumbling mountain man, Breckenridge Elkins.
