Antenna’s Room 220 online publication, started in 2011, has been called ‘the only place to find serious (and irreverent) discussion of literature in New Orleans’ by the New York Review of Books. Growing from modest convenings in the former Colton School to a virtual clearinghouse for literary culture in New Orleans, Room 220 hosts workshops and literary events, including evening salon reading series.
