Well Lit: Black Widow Salon Hosts Campanella, Powell


On Monday, discussions about gentrification, politics, and post-K New Orleans will happen outside City Hall. The French Quarter's Crescent City Books monthly Black Widow Salon will host a pair of Tulane public intellectuals: historian and author of The Accidental City, Lawrence Powell, and geographer Richard Campanella who recently published "Gentrification and its Discontents."


Black Widow Salon Invites Five Authors


Lit lovers and anyone on the hunt for new reads should head to tonight’s Black Widow Salon gathering. The monthly event takes place upstairs at Crescent City Books (230 Chartres) and usually invites one or two writers to read and answer questions. Tonight’s reading will offer poetry and prose from five writers with strong connections to South Louisiana.

You Publish Too Much!: A Room 220 Interview with Bill Zavatsky


by Michael Allen Zell for Room 220

Bill Zavatsky is a New York poet who has had two of his own books published since 1975. Why so few?  He’s been busy running SUN press and magazine for fifteen years, translating Surrealist poets, teaching, and playing jazz piano. Zavatsky graciously took time to answer a few questions last week in advance of the next Black Widow Salon at Crescent City Books (230 Chartres St.), at which he will be the featured guest.
