One thing Literacy Texas strives for at our conference is making sure it's enjoyable for those who travel to attend. We hope you'll take advantage of our new location to explore some of the fabulous restaurants and shops Waco has to offer, including the renowned Magnolia Market. And if you'd like to soak up some culture, or just sit down and have dinner with other attendees, consider joining us for one of our evening social events!
Private Tour of Armstrong Browning Museum (Sunday, 5:30 - 7:30 pm)
If you're arriving on Sunday, join us for a private tour of the beautiful Armstrong Browning Library, maintained by Baylor University. The library is dedicated to studying the lives and work of poets Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and houses the world's largest collection of Browning materials, in addition to a collection of 19th-century books, manuscripts, and works of art. The three-story building is constructed in the Italian Renaissance style and contains sixty-two stained glass windows celebrating the works of the Brownings -- the largest collection of secular stained glass in the world.
***Space is limited! You must indicate during registration that you are interested in attending this event.***
