The Ranger College Library invites you to join them as they celebrate the birthday of Conan the Barbarian creator and Rising Star native Robert E. Howard at 6pm on Friday, January 22 in the Goleman Library auditorium on the main campus in Ranger, TX.
Noted Howard blogger and biographer Todd B. Vick will present on, read from, and sign copies of, his upcoming book “Renegades and Rogues: The Life and Legacy of Robert E. Howard”, set for release by University of Texas Press on January 19.
Creator of the Howard-centric blog “On an Underwood No. 5”, Vick investigates Howard’s twelve-year writing career, analyzes the influences that underlay his celebrated characters, and assesses the afterlife of Conan, the figure in whom Howard’s fervent imagination achieved its most durable expression.
The event begins at 6pm and is free to attend. Autographed copies of the book will be on sale for $30.00 (cash only). Masks are required indoors and will be available at no cost. For more information email email@example.com or call 254-647-1414.
