Today marks the 100th birthday of Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Tennessee Williams. Born on March 26, 1911, Williams' prolific career spanned more than 50 years before his death at age 71 on Feb. 25, 1983.
To celebrate Williams' life and work, we've borrowed a piece from GoodBiz113 profilee George Rodrigue ["Louisiana Artist Brings Post-Katrina [Blue Dog] Relief to New Orleans"]. Rodrigue's Thinking About Blanche [pictured above] was the poster for the 2006 Tennessee Williams Festival, in New Orleans.
For a compelling Southern perspective on Williams' influence, visit "Musings of an Artist's Wife," Wendy Rodrigue's blog: http://bit.ly/Tennessee100.
