Several weeks ago, it was announced that the tiny house in Kyle in which Katherine Anne Porter (Pale Horse, Pale Rider, "The Jilting of Granny Weatherall") grew up is soon to be a writer's center and library accessible to the public. Porter is probably turning in her grave just now, surprised to learn that she is finally attaining the endorsement as a Texas writer that had largely eluded her while she was alive. But she'd be heartened to know that the Katherine Anne Porter House Restoration Committee has raised nearly one million dollars to fully fix up a house that was bought for $10 in 1904.
