The Ogden Museum of Southern Art hosts a panel of contributors to The Best of LSU Fiction in this installment of its Southern Storytellers series. Released in 2010, the collection features 20 writers associated — most as teachers or students — with the university, including luminaries like Robert Penn Warren and Walker Percy. The lineup at Ogden includes James Wilcox (pictured), author of Modern Baptists and Hunk City, John Ed Bradley (It Never Rains in Tiger Stadium), Olympia Vernon (Eden, A Killing in This Town) and James Gordon Bennett (The Moon Stops Here, My Father's Geisha), as well as moderators Nolde Alexius and Judy Kahn, co-editors of the collection. Admission $10, free for Ogden members. — Will Coviello
