Five writers have passed through New Orleans on their way to the Nobel Prize in Literature. Dozens more who came this way have been awarded Pulitzers, National Book Awards and O. Henry Prizes. Something happens to writers in New Orleans that stays with them wherever they roam. During our Books and Bohemians Literary Walking Tour you will visit one of only three literary landmark hotels in America. William Faulkner, Tennessee Williams and Ernest Hemingway stayed there often. Truman Capote said he was born there. (He wasn’t.) We’ll visit the authors’ homes and favorite haunts. We’ll immerse ourselves in the vibrant culture of Dixie Bohemia, La Vie Bohéme, in the 1920’s. If you couldn’t join the Lost Generation in Paris, you came to Paris on The Mississippi. And we’ll shine the spotlight on New Orleans’ women, African American and contemporary writers. A relaxed stroll through the French Quarter with time for a cocktail or two (Drinks NOT included).
