WALKER PERCY WEEKEND JUNE 2-4, 2017 

 

For 2017

Next year we look forward to expanding on the successes of our previous years. We intend to feature more film screenings, additional lectures, and perhaps a live theatrical production. Friday night’s “Love in the Ruins” cocktail gala will return (rain willing). We also intend to create downloadable podcasts of panel discussions for an online audience. The Crawfish and Craft Beer dinner and Front Porch Bourbon Tour were so popular that they simply have to be done again. 2016’s panel discussions focused on the parallels between Percy and other literary luminaries including Dostoyevsky and Bruce Springsteen (yes, you read that right) proved popular, so we will continue to expand programming to offer a broader exploration of Southern literature.  For complete information www.walkerpercyweekend.org
