At long last, today, August 18, A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge hits the bookstore shelves!, Look for it at your local retailer, or buy it online:
As I’ve been documenting, there’s been a flurry of press coverage of A.D. in advance of the book, and there’s much more coverage in the works! I’m so excited, and so grateful for all the attention the book — and by extension the book’s characters — and of course the story of Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans — is getting.
My book tour starts Wednesday, with a stop in Austin, and then on to Houston, and of course New Orleans, before I return to NYC for the Idlewild book party/benefit. If you’re going to be in either NOLA or NYC on the respective dates, here are links to the two parties (where you’ll be asked to RSVP):
And once again here’s the entire tour (with new dates & venues still being added).
I hope you like A.D. — if you do, please spread the word to friends, family, book groups, and those with a special interest in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region. I look forward to seeing you at one or more of the events!
