Description

From Truman to Tennessee and Faulkner to Hemingway, many of the giants of American and Southern literature came to New Orleans, one way or the other!

The Hotel Monteleone, one of several accredited Literary Landmarks in the Vieux Carre, is our departure point. The tour meanders past others such as the Napoleon House, the Upper Pontalba, the Faulkner House, the Williams House and the Beauregard-Keyes Mansion, ending at Antoine's Restaurant two hours later.

Connect the dots amongst and between the National Register Landmark buildings and the geniuses of Southern and American literature who were happy to be part of the beautiful Crescent City. Your tour is hosted by a Native Creole writer, historian, and resident of the French Quarter. A student of Cleanth Brooks!

We start in the lobby of the South's only literary landmark hotel, the fabulous Monteleone. We visit the cocktail haunts of famous writers like Capote, Tennessee, Hemingway, and Eudora Welty!

Cocktails are available in the Carousel Lounge and along our carefully-chosen route through the beautiful French Quarter! Yes, you can have a drink!

We will visit the past homes and haunts of Faulkner, Williams, Capote, Rebecca Wells, John Berendt, and so many others. Stop in at the classic Napoleon House and the spectacular 175-year old Antoine's Restaurant, both favorites of the renown Dixie Bohemia!

Many other stops and stories, but we wouldn't want to give all of it away!
