Tennessee Williams Program 33rd Annual - Page 3

SAINTS AND SINNERS LITERARY FESTIVAL CELEBRATES ITS SWEET 16! A program of the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival, Saints and Sinners Literary Festival was founded in 2003 as an innovative way to reach the community with information about HIV/AIDS, particularly disseminating prevention messages via the writers, thinkers and spokes- people of the LGBTQ community. It was also formed to bring the LGBTQ literary community together to celebrate the literary arts. The Festival has grown into an internationally- recognized event that brings together a who’s who of LGBTQ publishers, writers, and readers from throughout the United States and beyond. The Festival, held the same weekend as TW/NOLF, features panel discussions and master classes around literary topics that provide a forum for authors, editors, and publishers to talk about their work for the benefit of emerging writers and the enjoyment of fans of LGBTQ literature. Your TWFest VIP Pass, Combo Pass, or Literary Discussion Pass admits you to SASFest panels and readings. MARCH 29-31 AT THE HOTEL MONTELEONE Saints and Sinners Literary Festival is grateful for the support of our premier sponsor, the John Burton Harter Foundation, and funding support from The Greater New Orleans Foundation LBGT Fund. For our 16th program cover, artist Timothy Cummings has provided SASFest with his original artwork.
