The Tulane New Wave has a short write-up about next Wednesday’s launch with Brian Boyles, including a lovely photograph in which we are beyond honored to appear in the same frame with the peerless Richard Ford. Cue fanboy thrills immediately.
I’m delighted to say that the New Orleans book launch for Hattiesburg has now been confirmed. I’m honored to join Brian Boyles, author of the just-published New Orleans Boom and Blackout: One Hundred Days in America’s Coolest Hotspot (also with the History Press), for a joint launch hosted by the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South at Tulane University. The launch(es) will take place on Wednesday, February 4th, at 7.00pm in Freeman Auditorium on Tulane’s campus, and will be followed by a discussion, reception, and book signing. Joel Dinerstein, Director of the NOCGS, will moderate the event. Details of the after-party are still to be announced, but we’re almost certain it will involve a glass of wine.
My thanks again to the NOCGS for their gracious sponsorship of the early research for the book, and for their kindness in hosting the two of us next month. Come one, come all — this event is open to the public.
