Walker Percy documentary premiers tonight on PBS

Event: Jul 04, 2011

I’m sure many of you are currently engrossed in Ken Burns’ sweeping account of prohibition America (my friend said she was watching Part I of it last night in New York, but I don’t have a television so I really have no clue what’s on locally). But, as lovers of Louisiana literature, you’ll undoubtedly be even more excited to learn that Win Riley’s documentary about Walker Percy is premiering tonight on the station. Check local listing for exact playtimes.

Room 220 had the pleasure of interviewing Win Riley as one of its first features.

More information about the documentary on PBS is available here.
