Hand-in-hand with Bethune & Son's mission to capture the South Texas lifestyle through material goods, we also believe in the effort to preserve heritage in the literary arts. South Texas is rich with stories, authors, story-tellers and more. Through our Annual Texas Short Story Contest, we seek to preserve the often forgotten art of the short story and simultaneously collect the memories and voices of the very people who contribute to the legacy of the Lone Star State.
Bethune & Son preserves these stories by printing our own anthology of contest winning entries and honorable mentions from our annual contest. Stories published in our anthology, Presidio, capture the rich cultural heritage and literary imagination found in the Great State of Texas and beyond. Interested readers may find copies of Presidio available for purchase in Bethune & Son stores.
