 With only four months to go until Howard Days (June 7-8) at the Robert E. Howard Museum in Cross Plains, Texas, we are in the process of getting our panels and activities lined up, travel plans are being made and the anticipation of good Howard Fellowship under the warm Texas sun is becoming more real every day!

The underlying theme for this year's event is REH in 1934, a 90th anniversary look at why 1934 was such a banner year for Ol' Two-Gun. In addition to writing Conan, El Borak, Breckinridge Elkins and Red Sonya of Rogatino stories and starting a relationship with Novalyne Price, Bob hit the road and traveled quite a bit around the American Southwest and even into Mexico.

With that in mind, let's meet Rob Roehm, Howard Days 2024 Guest of Honor. Among Rob's other accomplishments (which you can find under the "GUEST" tab), Rob is the only person we know of who has traveled to every location in the U.S. that Howard wrote about visiting.

Rob has extensively detailed his travels to dozens of cities and places Howard visited and has documented it all with photos, courthouse papers, newspaper clippings and interesting stories. One of the panels we will present will be "Travels with Bob" - a great look into the life and wanderings of Robert E. Howard.

We will also have a group present gathering up oral histories of Howard Days with interviews, and Project Pride is preparing their own Howard Days history.

So, Howard Days 2024 will be a time to share old memories and make new ones, all in support of the Legacy of the Incomparable American Original, Robert E. Howard. There's plenty of time to make plans to come to Cross Plains in June - but it never hurts to start a little early.

Most of the information you need can be found under the tabs under our header, so start clicking! We'll see you in June!
