Join us for a discussion and book signing with LAWRENCE N. POWELL, SALLY ASHER, ZELLA PALMER, and BRIAN BOYLES, contributors to NEW ORLEANS & THE WORLD: 1718-2018 TRICENTENNIAL ANTHOLOGY.

As New Orleans prepares to celebrate the 300th anniversary of its founding in 2018, Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities has published NEW ORLEANS & THE WORLD: 1718-2018 Anthology, a collection of essays by leading scholars illuminating the role of the city in major events in U.S. and world history, the economic innovations and cultural expressions birthed in the city that impacted people around the globe, and the succeeding waves of new populations who redefined the city’s shape and society. Vivid photography, artwork, and archival documents serve to illustrate three centuries of life in New Orleans. Printed in New Orleans, this high quality publication is a landmark commemoration of the Tricentennial.

Octavia Books is please to be hosting a number of the anthology's editors and contributors, including: Lawrence N. Powell, author of THE ACCIDENTAL CITY; Zella Palmer, author of NEW ORLEANS CON SABOR LATINO; LEH VP Brian Boyles, author of NEW ORLEANS BOOM AND BLACKOUT, and Sally Asher, author of HOPE & NEW ORLEANS: A History of Crescent City Street Names, and STORIES FROM THE ST. LOUIS CEMETERIES OF NEW ORLEANS.
