Publications of THE Texas Folklore Society


Since 1916, we have collected and published folklore of Texas and the Southwest. Our books cover a variety of topics of interest. Members receive the annual publication with their paid membership and have the opportunity to submit their papers for publication.

Human beings long for connection—with our ancestors, neighbors, family, and friends. Collecting, preserving, and sharing folklore allows us to connect with our past and gives those who follow us an opportunity to continue that connection. How did our fellow Texans entertain, learn, mourn, celebrate the good times, survive the hard times, and conduct their everyday lives? Join us and share your own stories, traditions, and folkways.
