New Walker Percy Documentary Premiere

Published  October 4, 2011

Tonight, check the listings of your local PBS affiliate for the premiere of what looks to be a stunning new documentary on our very own Godfather of Southern Existentialism, Walker Percy. The doc is directed by New Orleans–based filmmaker Win Riley and features probing interviews with Percy experts, family, and fellow lit laureates, including narration from the hypnotic Richard Ford. 

For more info, visit the PBS and film websites. Also, the doc is showing during Loyola's first-ever Conference of the Walker Percy Center for Writing and Publishing, taking place next weekend, October 14–16th, for readers and Percy nuts in the New Orleans area (or those willing to travel for their fix).
