Hotel Peter & Paul, Church Space, 2317 Burgundy Street, New Orleans, LA
Co-sponsored by the New Orleans chapter of Women’s National Book Association with an introduction by Susan Larson Moderated by Anne Gisleson *books will be for sale by Octavia Books, Jami’s by Garden District
Details This is an extremely special New Orleans launch party for two books, the first by Margaret Wilkerson Sexton, called The Revisioners, and the second by Jami Attenberg, called All This Could Be Yours. Both books are largely set in contemporary New Orleans and we will be discussing what it is like to write about this complicated, magnificent place, among other topics.
There will be an open bar from 6 pm-7pm. Then we will be in conversation with Anne Gisleson, author of one of our favorite memoirs, The Futilitarians: Our Year of Thinking, Drinking, Grieving and Reading.
The event is generously sponsored by the Women's National Book Association, in celebration of National Reading Group month, and will feature an introduction by Susan Larson. Thank you also to co-sponsors HMH Books and Counterpoint Press.
And also a special shout out to Hotel Peter and Paul for providing the beautiful church space for the event. What a dream to have it there.
