ESU New Orleans Branch

Welcome to the New Orleans Branch of the ESU

We've had an event-filled and fun year!  This was the international celebration of Shakespeare's 400th memorial year, and several of The English Speaking Union of New Orleans' programs revolved around this anniversary.  In February, the Branch sponsored its annual, high school Shakespeare competition at Tulane and our regional winner went on to compete in New York in the Nationals.

The Branch hosted a program by Tulane University's English Department Head, Mike Kuczynski in May.  He spoke about successfully bringing a touring First Folio copy to Tulane.  In May, the Branch also hosted international author, Andrea Mays and she spoke about her current book, The Millionaire and the Bard.

The cost of the conference is $370 with an optional day of events for $100.
