The Reading Life's Tennessee Williams Fest Preview

The Reading Life for 3/19/13

The Tennessee Williams New Orleans Literary Festival is the big event in town this week, and The Reading Life is there.

We present festival guests, including first-time novelist and Oprah pick Ayana Mathis, author of The Twelve Tribes of Hattie; playwright John Biguenet, whose new work is Mold; and Elena Passarello, the first woman to win the Stanley and Stella Shouting Contest, and author of a book of essays entitled, appropriately enough, Let Me Clear My Throat.

You can view Elena Passarello's winning "Stella" here.
