Tennessee Williams Exhibition from Between the Covers Rare Books at The Bookshop in Old New Castle

A Streetcar Named Desire

During the month of March, Between the Covers Rare Books is presenting an exhibition of rare Tennessee Williams books, play scripts, and assorted memorabilia at The Bookshop in Old New Castle in honor of the playwright’s 100th birthday. Tennessee Williams, who would be 100 on March 26th, is considered the greatest Southern playwright and one of the most important of the 20th Century, with a body of work that still resonates with American audiences today in revival after revival. Among the notable and rare items included in the exhibition are original scripts for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, A Streetcar Named Desire bearing its original title, The Poker Night, and a beautiful copy of Weird Tales magazine from 1928, which contains Williams’ first published story.
