New Orleans has served as a setting for many of the world’s most famous literary works. Learn about the origins of Anne Rice’s “Interview with a Vampire” and John Kennedy Toole’s “A Confederacy of Dunces” from rare interviews with Rice and Thelma Toole, the mother of the author.
The documentary “Literary New Orleans” will look at the locally written word over a history of more than three centuries. Produced and hosted by Peggy Scott Laborde, the program will premiere on Thursday, Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. on WYES-TV and stream on wyes.org/live and the WYES and PBS apps.
