The 29th Annual Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration: Southern Gothic
The 29th annual Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration explores all things that make the American South unique in our upcoming conference—Southern Gothic. The upcoming celebration will offer presentations on subjects ranging from William Faulkner and Tennessee Williams to the cold case investigations of Klan murders in the American South to voodoo, this conference celebrates writers that put Mississippi on the literary map.
The Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration (NLCC) is a time honored tradition in the State of Mississippi, with a well-deserved reputation as one of the state's most significant annual conferences devoted to literature, history, film, and culture. Each February the NLCC chooses a new topic related to humanities in the American South and brings nationally known scholars and authors to Natchez for our award winning conference. The annual Celebration is sponsored by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History, Mississippi Humanities Council, and Copiah Lincoln Community College, and supported by the City of Natchez, the Adams County Board of Supervisors, and the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.
