Letters From New Orleans 2nd edition


I should have mentioned this a week ago. For those interested in Katrina Came Calling, this is a much more compelling read, written before Hurricane Katrina, by my buddy R. Walker, who lived in New Orleans for about for years. Anyway, this is where I’ll be tonight:

The Letters From New Orleans 2nd Edition* Release Party
Tuesday March 14, 2006
No cover. Free snacks at 6:30pm
Reading at 7:00pm
Mo Pitkin’s House of Satisfaction
34 Avenue A between 2nd and 3rd

Rob Walker reads from, discusses, and perhaps answers questions about his essay collection Letters From New Orleans, covering such topics as celebratory gunfire, urban decay, the relationship between people and places, and the pros and cons of masking.

*2nd Edition includes a new afterword, and two or three typo corrections.

  1. can’t make it to mo pitkin’s tonite, but just wanted to let you know that i thoroughly enjoyed katrina came calling. (not that you’d remember, but it was sent via parents house in englewood, nj).
    one day, i’m sure we’ll meet in the flesh.
    keep on trucking.
