Dallas Contemporary will present An Evening Remembering Larry McMurtry, a discussion and book launch celebrating the release of Pastures of the Empty Page: Fellow Writers on the Life and Legacy of Larry McMurtry.

When he died in 2021, Larry McMurtry was one of America’s most revered writers. The author of treasured novels such as Lonesome Dove and The Last Picture Show, and co-author of the screenplays for Brokeback Mountain and Streets of Laredo, McMurtry created unforgettable characters and landscapes largely drawn from his life growing up on the family’s hardscrabble ranch outside his hometown of Archer City, Texas. Pastures of the Empty Page brings together nearly 40 fellow writers to honor the man and his impact on American letters.

At this event, editor George Getschow and book contributors Kathryn Jones, Brandon Kennedy, Dianne Solis, and Katy Vine will discuss their respective relationships to McMurtry and his work, with Texas Monthly senior editor Jeff Saloman moderating. The discussion will be followed by a reception, with musical guest Nathan Mongol Wells.
