About the TWS

The Thomas Wolfe Society (TWS) was established in 1979 to promote appreciation and study of the works of this famous American author. Members meet annually in May at locations in the U.S. or Europe visited by Wolfe or familiar to him. Recent conferences have been held in Asheville, NC; Gettysburg, PA; Albany, NY; Charlotte, NC; Indianapolis, IN; Savannah, GA; Greenville, SC; and Paris, France. This year we meet in Baltimore, MD (5/26-27).

The Society issues an annual publication of Wolfe-related materials, as well as its signature journal, The Thomas Wolfe Review, featuring scholarly articles and features.

“Remembering speechlessly, we seek the great forgotten language, the lost lane-end into heaven, a stone, a leaf, an unfound door. . . . O lost, and by the wind grieved, ghost, come back again.”
