If you believe in LOA’s mission and would like to support our activities in a substantial way, nothing is more helpful than endowing a volume in the series to help keep it permanently in print. Your gift will have prominent recognition in the book, and as a Guardian of American Letters you will make a lasting contribution to American culture.Sherwood Anderson: Collected Stories, edited by Charles Baxter. Anderson’s haunting, understated, often frank explorations of small-town life transformed American storytelling; without his example the work of Hemingway, Faulkner, Wolfe, Steinbeck, and McCullers is almost unthinkable. Collected Stories gathers all of the story collections Anderson published during his lifetime: the revolutionary Winesburg, Ohio (1919), The Triumph of the Egg (1921), Horses and Men (1923), and Death in the Woods (1933), along with a generous selection of stories left uncollected or unpublished at his death.
A fully tax-deductible contribution of $75,000 to the Guardians of American Letters Fund will ensure that Anderson’s stories—an essential part of the American literary heritage—remain available for current and future generations of readers.
