Sunday Salon Series: Session I - May 17, 24 and 31
Beauregard-Keyes House is pleased to partner with Tennessee Williams & New Orleans Literary Festival to present an interactive salon-style literary arts series. Participants in the Sunday Salon will meet with local writers for a series of engaging virtual discussions about the author's latest works and creative processes in a small and interactive setting.
Participants will read the author's latest book and come together online as a group for discussion, inspiration, and even some opportunities to explore their own creative side. Current sessions of the salon will take place digitally and transition to in-person sessions at the historic Beauregard-Keyes House when it is safe to gather. To keep the experience intimate, salon sessions are capped at 15 participants. Sessions to be conducted via Zoom. Recorded sessions will be available if you can't participate in real time for every meeting. No refunds.
SUNDAY SALON SESSION 1: $20
May 17, 24, and 31 at 3 pm in the afternoon featuring C. Morgan Babst and her book The Floating World.
Babst's stunning debut novel, The Floating World, was described by The New York Times Book Review as a "powerful debut novel... impressively unrestrained, even Faulknerian... Anyone who has experienced loss will be hard hit by Babst's expert descriptions... that seem infused with the city's soul." The novel follows a distinctly New Orleans family in the wake of Katrina as they navigate the trauma and personal mysteries caused by the disaster, and reckon with the history that led to the storm's devastation. World was named a Best Book of 2017 by Amazon, Kirkus, Southern Living and the Dallas Morning News, and in the face of current events, its subject matter has become especially poignant and disturbingly pertinent.
To participate, you will need a copy of The Floating World. We are pleased to partner with Garden District Book Shop to bring our participants copies. Purchase HERE.
