Pipe Dreams: La. Colonial Trade Explored in French Quarter
In the early years of our great city, tobacco cultivation was the order of the day. The French Company of the Indies had this hardcore belief that the humid bayou was the place to upstage Britain's tobacco concern in Virginia, thus eliminating the need for France to import the plant from its colonial rival. Scheming Scotsman John Law (no relation) engineered the plan, which failed horribly, but ended up increasing the Company's influence in the young colony. A new exhibition at the Historic New Orleans Collection, "Pipe Dreams," explains this story in rich detail.
Summer Book Festival Binds Local Publishers in the French Quarter
Perhaps as a child you engaged in your local library's summer read-a-thon, powering through chapter books in order to win novelty prizes and, more importantly, the respect of your community. As an adult, maybe you've felt the heft of Infinite Jest of a late June morning and made a solemn vow to get past footnote 24. If this is the case, then this Saturday's Summer Book Festival in the French Quarter will help you start the season in style.

Newly Edited Memoir of 18th Century Clerk Offers Rare Peek Into Historic New Orleans
In 1730, Marc-Antoine Caillot arrived in New Orleans to record his observations about Louisiana, or 'New France,' as he knew it. In 'A Company Man,' modern Crescent City residents get a peek into their hometown in the 18th Century and see that much of the lure of 18th Century New Orleans persists into the 21st.
