By Room 220

Alright, alright. This post really isn’t about a literary event—it’s about a film screening, the New Orleans premiere of Good People Go To Hell, Saved People Go To Heaven at 7p.m. on Sunday, March 1 at Indywood (628 Elysian Fields). But since the Room 220 editors had a hand in organizing the event, it will also include some bookish elements: namely, the inclusion of a couple celebrated authors as part of a panel discussion following the film.
