literary new orleans

The Christian Science Monitor has an article on literary New Orleans.

Some key Williams haunts not far from the bustling Cafe Du Monde are marked with plaques: 722 Toulouse, his first address; 632 St. Peter Street, where he is reputed to have been inspired to write “A Streetcar Named Desire” after hearing “that rattletrap of a streetcar that bangs up one old street and down another”; and 1014 Dumaine, where Williams lived following his literary success.

Other literary haunts include houses, hotels, and restaurants frequented by the likes of William Faulkner and Eudora Welty.
