Ignatius, the iconic character from A Confederacy of Dunces, turns 30 this year. The book was first published by LSU Press in 1980 and went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. 30 years and millions of readers later people are still drawn to this quirky character and John Kennedy Toole's incomparable comic writing.
LSU Press is pleased to host a discussion panel on the book and its many translations (including some of their truly "out there" cover designs!) on the LSU Campus at Hill Memorial Library on April 27th at 4:30p.m.
