What to Expect
Connect the dots amongst and between National Register Landmark buildings and the geniuses of Southern and American literature who were happy to be part of the beautiful Crescent City, as hosted by a writer and a student of the renown critic, Cleanth Brooks. Cocktails optional!
"Times are not good here. The city is crumbling into ashes. It has been buried under taxes and frauds and maladministrations so that it has become a study for archaeologists...but it is better to live here in sackcloth and ashes than to own the whole state of Ohio.” -Lafcadio Hearn
