Stella vs. Katrina, and Guess Who Wins?

“The news from New Orleans is that, yes — the annual Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival will take place, as scheduled, from March 30 to April 2 in its usual French Quarter haunts. The four-day fete, in its 20th year, celebrates the life and legacy of the playwright who called the Big Easy his ‘spiritual home’ with panel discussions, celebrity events, theater and musical performances, French Quarter walking tours, food and wine tastings and — what would a Williams celebration be without it? — a Stanley and Stella Shouting Contest.”
