Last night, Laura Joh Rowland and I hosted a “Literary Event” at Octavia Bookstore in Uptown New Orleans.
It was a lot of fun, with vast quantities of food and wine, a literary trivia contest, and an informal panel moderated by Elora Fink. We talked about our books and the writing process and (of course) Katrina. The audience was wonderfully enthusiastic, we signed scads of books, and in general had a great time.
All in all, a lovely evening spent with friends, fans, and new acquaintances, all enthusiastically in love with books.
