The August Derleth Society is a non-profit organization formed in the late 1970’s to actively preserve the rich memory of this true Renaissance man. Our goal is to encourage the study of August Derleth’s work and to preserve the memory of this Wisconsin writer, publisher, editor, columnist, naturist, environmentalist, and teacher.
We are dedicated to the prospect of bringing many of Derleth’s beloved titles back into print, as we are witnessing a strong resurgence in reader interest.
As his loyal following and his expansive readership continue to grow, the August Derleth Society remains committed to its purpose to foster ongoing, two-way dialogue, promoting the best aspects of his singular personality, gentle manner, and brilliant mind.
Recently, August Derleth Center opened to the public which consist of book archives and memorabilias.
