Tour of Toole's New Orleans, June 7, 2014

Cory MacLauchlin, author of Butterfly in the Typewriter, is planning to host a John Kennedy Toole event on Saturday, June 7, 2014.    He recently posted this information on his web site:


A tour of JKT’s New Orleans is being organized for June 7, 2014. We will escape from Baton Rouge! As your guide I will show you the sites and tell you the stories that inspired A Confederacy of Dunces. The tour includes a presentation of the Toole Papers at Tulane University, some of JKT’s favorite French Quarter haunts and a behind-the-scenes look at the Lucky Dog Warehouse.
Space is limited. Tickets are on sale now through the Manship Theatre. If you have any questions please contact Marti Luke at

The Louisiana Research Collection is honored to be a stop on the tour.
