Walker Percy Weekend
June 5 @ 8:00 am - June 7 @ 5:00 pm
Enjoy one of the biggest weekends in St. Francisville honoring the late author Walker Percy. Enjoy interactive lectures, meetings, meet & greets, and presentations honoring Mr. Percy. Over the three day weekend, meet presenters and devotees from all over the country as they delve into the works of Walker Percy.
“Intellectually serious but broadly accessible, the 2020 festival invites fans of Southern literature to pursue appreciation of Percy’s thought and writing while attending presentations by renowned Percy scholars, panel discussions, readings, an art exhibition of photographs of Walker Percy, and a series of social and culinary events inspired by the author’s most famous works. Events take place at locations around St. Francisville’s historic district.”
Tickets usually go on sale early February during the year of the event.
