AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Longing to learn more about the Lone Star State?

The University of Texas Press in Austin has announced a 16-book project called The Texas Bookshelf. The publishing initiative unveiled Wednesday involves an effort by UT faculty to chronicle the state’s culture and history.

The books and a companion website will launch in 2017. The first book will be a full-length history of Texas by Stephen Harrigan. He’s the author of nine books including “The Gates of the Alamo” and “Remember Ben Clayton.”

The other 15 books by additional authors will be released over five years with topics including politics, art, film, photography, sports and business.

UT President Bill Powers says the project is the ideal way to share the rich resources of the campus with the rest of the world.
