One Book, One New Orleans

Know a great New Orleans book? Think the whole city should read it? Then go suggest it at One Book, One New Orleans.

Help us select the book for the 2008 annual community-wide reading project! We’re now considering the book all of us will read together later this year.

We’re seeking a work that relates to our community at this moment and will inspire us in how we relate to each other.

Our past book selections have been A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines in 2004, Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How It Changed America by John M. Barry in Spring 2005, and Coming Out the Door for the Ninth Ward by Nine Times Social and Pleasure Club in 2007.

All Over the Internets

I've been busy and too tired from being busy to post all the places I've been and still am on the Internets so here's the round-up:

Conversations Book Club interview at the Richard Wright public library:


AuthorViews interview at the NOLA Bookfair:

Carp(e) Libris review and book giveaway

Carp(e) Libris interview

Thanks, Diane, for reviewing my book, hosting the giveaway, and posting the interview. It was great fun. Next book, I'll do it all again.

And an oldie but goodie: Crystal K.'s interview on WTUL, part of the Katrina Warriors Network reading project: The Podcast

Thanks, Crystal. It was a lot of fun and when my life is less like a race to the grave, we should do it a 3rd time. With questions from listeners this time, yeah, like my friend Preston Allen is doing at his All or Nothing blog.
