In 2013, the Tennessee Williams Festival presents a line-up including four Pulitzer Prize winners — playwright Marsha Norman, author and judge of our Fiction Contest Michael Cunningham, Oscar-winning playwright John Patrick Shanley, and journalist and novelist Leonard Pitts. Other featured appearances at this year’s festival include Mad Men star Bryan Batt; Don Murray, who starred in Bus Stop with Marilyn Monroe and in the debut production of Tennessee Williams’ Rose Tattoo on Broadway; Emily Mann, the director of recent all-black production of A Streetcar Named Desire on Broadway; and Ayana Mathis, the debut author of The Twelve Tribes of Hattie, an Oprah Book Club 2.0 selection.
Local independent bookseller Garden District Book Shop will offer Festival authors’ books for sale, along with special books about Louisiana and all things Tennessee Williams.
