DeGolyer Library will celebrate the life of noted playwright and screenwriter Horton Foote with an exhibit and panel discussion in March 2011 (date to be determined).

Foote’s personal papers, housed in DeGolyer Library, illustrate his prolific writing career, spanning six decades. Highlights include his Oscar-winning screenplays for To Kill a Mockingbird and Tender Mercies, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Young Man from Atlanta. Photographs, letters, programs, posters and other documents also will be on display.

The exhibit will be up during the Dallas-Fort Worth area Horton Foote Festival, which runs March 14 through May 1, 2011. For more information, call 214-768-3231.
