In a cramped bedroom of his parents’ home in the town of Cross Plains, the late author Robert E. Howard brought to life an exotic world of heroic fantasy characters, most famously Conan the Barbarian. The town celebrates its literary star with Robert E. Howard Days (June 10-11), drawing a loyal following dedicated to his work and legacy. The weekend includes panel discussions with Howard experts, memorabilia swaps and sales, extended hours of the Robert E. Howard House Museum, and the family-friendly Barbarian Festival.
