What is better than lunch with the Queen? What about lunch with four?

Just in time for the Christmas season, the Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration is selling tickets to “There She Is!” a luncheon and panel discussion with the current and three former Miss Mississippis — two of whom became Miss America, including Natchez’s own Lynda Lea Mead Shea.

The luncheon will be in conjunction with the annual literary festival and will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 23, 2023, at the Carriage House at Stanton Hall.
