Originally posted on Tue, Mar 08 2011 at ROPL.org.

Born 100 years ago on March 26th, 1911, Tennessee Williams is best known for the movie adaptation of his play, A Streetcar Named Desire. And high school students might be familiar with his play, The Glass Menagerie. But no matter who you are, you’ve most likely heard of Williams, watched one the many movies his works inspired or checked out a play he wrote.

In memory of his birthday, the library is displaying a wide variety of Williams’ work. Check out a biography of Williams and learn about his life. You can also grab a copy of one of his plays, maybe put one on yourself. You can even check out a movie or two, based on his work. And if you want to dig a little deeper, check out When Blanche met Brando : the scandalous story of “A streetcar named Desire”.
