Ari Schulman and Micah Mattix are among the speakers at the Walker Percy Weekend. It pleases me to no end on this, Walker Percy’s birthday (he would have been 98 today) to announce to you that all our events are completely sold out. Done. If you don’t have your tickets, you can get on the waiting list, but there are already a number of people on it, so it’s looking highly unlikely that you’ll be able to get into anything.

For a literary and culture festival in its first year, this is a good problem to have.

Sold out! Thanks so very much to you readers who bought tickets, and who are helping to make Walker Percy Weekend a success. It will be a special treat for me to meet this blog’s readers who are coming to the festival, and to see you meet each other. The great Franklin Evans, of Evans-Manning fame, will be here. The dude is tall, let me tell you.
