Getting Used to It

Gwendolyn Knapp Talks Writing, NOLA, and IBS



Humidity, sweat, grease and the occasional hangover: these are things the New Orleanian must accept. But add to that gastrointestinal problems, hoarding and the search for your soul mate and you’re really in for a doozy. In her new book After A While You Just Get Used To It, Gwendolyn Knapp explores all these phenomena that make up a southern woman’s life— especially one living with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. 


Today in NOLA: 6.02.15


Tonight, get ready to rawk with Rob Zombie! Or not. Those looking for something a bit more mellow, can check out Gregory Agid on Frenchmen. If you want something at a lower decibel level, but not quite mellow, Gwendolyn Knapp is reading at her book launch uptown. Plus, don’t forget your groceries. Today in 1885 was the closing day of the New Orleans World’s Fair, known as the World Cotton Centennial. A monument from the Fair stands at the intersection of Esplanade and Bayou Road. More things to see and do tonight:
