John Kennedy Toole documentary now available to watch online!
Filmmake Joe Sanford has recently made his documentary on John Kennedy Toole, the Omega Point, available to watch online. Sanford used images, correspondence and other materials from the John Kennedy Toole papers in this documentary. Having seen special screenings of the documentary around town, we are thrilled that Sanford has made it available to the public, and encourage you to watch and learn more about one of New Orleans' most famous authors.
