When most people think about famous writers and Key West, they think of Ernest Hemingway. There’s the house with all the cats and the annual look-a-like contest. But Hemingway only lived on the island for six years, on and off.

All this month, Key West is celebrating the birthday and the legacy of another major 20th century writer, one who lived there much longer. From the Here & Now Contributors Network, Nancy Klingener of WLRN brings us the story of Key West's love affair with Tennessee Williams.
