A Hot Tin Roof in New Orleans

By Linda Tancs

Tennessee Williams was a master American playwright, known for such works as A Streetcar Named Desire, The Glass Menagerie and Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.  Born Thomas Lanier Williams, he began using the moniker Tennessee after college when he moved to New Orleans, a place he reputedly considered to be his spiritual home.  It’s fitting, then, that the Big Easy should honor one of its own with an annual festival.  The Tennessee Williams New Orleans Literary Festival features literary panel discussions, theatrical performances, master classes with a notable expert in writing or the arts, and literary walking tours.  Previous festivals have hosted such luminaries as Dick Cavett, Edward Albee and George Plimpton.  This year’s event will run through 25 March.
