Southern Cuisine - July

It was time for my yearly pilgrimage to Saint Francisville, Louisiana. It was time for the literary festival celebrating Walker Percy's life and works. There are lectures about “The movies of the Moviegoer” by Read Mercer Schuchardt, “The History and Culture of Barbecue.” with John Shelton Reed and “Walker Percy–A Personal History” by a friend of mine since college, Dave Duty and much more for any Walker Percy fan. And if you know anything about Walker Percy, there is always Crayfish and bourbon. The celebration was canceled last year because of COVID. There was not enough time to make up for the lost time from last year but there was enough good food, good drinks (bourbon, of course) and new friends to make the weekend enjoyable.
