Will Coviello on the 10th anniversary of New Orleans' LGBT literary gathering

The 10th anniversary Saints and Sinners literary festival features Dorothy Allison (pictured; Bastard Out of Carolina, Cavedweller), Bernard Cooper (The Bill From My Father: A Memoir), Justin Torres (We the Animals), Ayana Mathis (The Twelve Tribes of Hattie), Summer Wood (Raising Wrecker), Andrew Holleran (Grief: A Novel) and many others. The festival was founded by members of the LGBT community to encourage writers to address issues related to HIV/AIDS, and it has grown into an all-encompassing literary conference. The event features readings, master classes and workshops on everything from fiction, poetry, working with personal narratives and various genre niches — from mystery novels to poetry publications for the bear community — to getting published and other topics. There also are walking tours, parties and other events. Visit the website for schedule and details. — WILL COVIELLO
