Here is Gary Krist giving a book talk at the 2014 Louisiana Book Fair
May’s book is Empire of Sin: A Story of Sex, Jazz, Murder, and The Battle for Modern New Orleans by Gary Krist. Copies can be picked up at the Circulation Desk to check out.
The discussion will be held on May 21st in Room H, on the 2nd floor of the library near the Reference Desk.
I could not find an interview from 1968, the year the book was published, with McCullough talking about the book. Nor have I found anything of him recently talking about the book. Instead, here’s a video from The Kalb Report interviewing McCullough.
Hello! Happy Holidays. Just a quick bit of news: I’ve updated the list of books we have read previously. I have also put in the entire list of books we are going to read in 2018 (with links to the catalog). February’s book The Johnstown Flood should be available by February 1st at the Circulation Desk.
