Katherine Anne Porter Society
I'm delighted to serve as president of the Katherine Anne Porter Society, a position I've held since 2013. The purpose of the Society, founded in 1993, is to assist and coordinate Katherine Anne Porter studies through the Society's general meetings, and other special conferences, the Society's Web site, and other activities approved by the Society.
The year 2015 was an exciting one for Katherine Anne Porter scholars. It saw the publication of Thomas Austenfeld's edited collection titled Katherine Anne Porter's Ship of Fools: New Interpretations and Transatlantic Contexts, which includes beautifully written essays on Porter's only novel. Last year also witnessed the revival of the Society's newsletter. I was fortunate to be the editor of the 15th volume, which covers the years 2008-2014, and of the 16th volume, which was published in May.
