Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Western Literature Association Blog during our “Zane Grey Week” event. The WLA Blog has been online for only a little more than a couple of months, and the flow of visitors to the site has been fairly steady throughout that time. With Zane Grey Week, however, there was quite a bump up in readers visiting the blog, with 360 page views registered over the past seven days. That suggests that this type of “event” is of interest to a variety of readers and blog surfers, and it suggests as well that focusing another week of discussion around a particular author or a particular western text might be a good idea for the future.
That said, the WLA Blog would be a willing host for such an event, and we are more than willing to hear suggestions for an author, book, film, etc., that might provide a focus for the week.
