The Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival returns to the historic French Quarter for its 33rd annual celebration of contemporary literature, culture, theater, and the works of Tennessee Williams. From March 27-31, 2019, attendees will enjoy celebrated award-winning speakers alongside fresh new voices on the literary scene. The five-day event offers a range of diverse speakers and performers, including Dorothy Allison, Jami Attenberg, Bryan Batt, Roy Blount, Jr., Doug Brinkley, Greg Brownderville, Robert Olen Butler, Maureen Corrigan, Michael Cunningham, John Guare, Silas House, Bernice L. McFadden, Daniel José Older, Julia Reed, Nathaniel Rich, Hannah Pittard, Wendy Corsi Staub, Poppy Tooker, Kent Wascom, and many more. “Our annual Tennessee Williams Tribute Reading, a favorite event among our patrons, will focus on Williams’ emergence from Tom to Tennessee and will include some of his earliest writings,” said Paul Willis, Executive Director. “And I’m excited to partner with Francine Segal for a dynamic staged reading of A Confederacy of Dunces that will include projections, music, and costumes. It’s such an iconic piece of New Orleans literature and culture, and you’re going to love our Ignatius, played by Charlie Talbert.”
