NoDef Speakeasy: July 10-17
by Cate Czarnecki
In New Orleans, it's all about the places you'll go. Whether it be a theoretical journey into the use of space in communities, a physical trip to discuss the new Tulane on-campus football stadium, or even a coroner's experience with the Great Beyond, go forth this week and explore your literal and metaphysical environments. There is also a Winston Churchill symposium.
Richard Ford, Newcomb College Finish Out the Week in NOLA's Literary Limelight
by Mary-Devon Dupuy
You've made it halfway through the week, but there's a handful of authors that hope all your brain power isn't used up yet. The rest of the week on the local lit calendar features a Pulitzer Prize-winning author bringing us a taste of Canada, college girls at Octavia Books, and a local scribe calling No Takebacks. Click through for details on the remainder of the week on the page:
NoDef Speakeasy: June 4-11
by Leon Perniciaro
Book events abound in New Orleans this week, with topics ranging from the Banana King Sam Zemurray to William Styron’s Sophie’s Choice and everything between. In particular, check out Octavia Books for Michael Parker’s The Watery Part of the World, a historical novel about pirates and slavery and all sorts of other unsavory things. Later in the week, stop by the Garden District Book Shop to hear about Cajun assassins and other toothy ne’er-do-wells. Finish the festivities off with a heady documentary and discussion of Henry Louis Gate Jr’s troubles and their racial ramifications. Here's the mental menu:
John Kennedy Toole Biographer Appears Twice in Two Days
Cory MacLauchlin is on a tour of New Orleans that includes meetings everywhere but under the Woolworth's clock. Over the weekend, he answered questions after a screening of a documentary about John Kennedy Toole. Early this week, the Confederacy of Dunces author's most recent biographer will get the floor to himself with two apperances scheduled to talk about his book, Butterfly in the Typewriter.
David Sedaris Takes Detour From Diaries for NOLA Appearance
Around this time of year, David Sedaris is usually associated with his oft-rehashed curmudgeonly classic about the erosive effects of elf duty, The Santaland Diaries. But, as it turns out, Sedaris is the author of other works, and A.J. Allegra has Santaland covered locally anyway. So, when the acclaimed essayist rolls into the Garden District Book Shop Tuesday, the focus will turn to animal anxiety instead of Macy's Mayhem.
Shaq to Bring Memoir to Garden District Book Shop
A little lockout would've never bothered a mountain of a man like Shaq. Even while pummeling defenses, the legendary Center ran sidelines as a cop, actor, video game kung-fu fighter, locker room comedian, rapper and even posted a late turn as an academic. The Big Shaqtus is now taking a turn as an author, and the LSU alum (and recently bronzed icon) is bringing his roadshow to the Garden District Book Shop for a stop next weekend. On Dec. 3, Basketball's Big Daddy will bring his new memoir, Shaq Uncut: My Story, to Prytania Street's Garden District Book Shop for a signing event.
John Besh Sets 'My Family Table'
by Brad Rhines
New Orleans chef-lebrity John Besh steps out of the kitchen and into the limelight today with the release of his second tome on local cooking, My Family Table. Besh will be making the rounds to promote his new book through the end of the year, starting with a few signings and appearances around town this week before making stops in New York, Texas, and Alabama, with a heaping helping of TV appearances undoubtedly thrown in along the way.
