Richards Leads Talk at Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival

Gary Richards, Associate Professor of English and Chair of the Department of English, Linguistics, and Communication, recently led the breakfast book club discussion of Robert Olen Butler’s A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain (1992) at the 2017 Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival. In the 11 years that Richards has annually led this group, it has covered a range of Southern writers, including George Washington Cable, Kate Chopin, Eudora Welty, Harper Lee, Ellen Gilchrist and, of course, Tennessee Williams.
