neworleans: September 2008 Archives

Monday, 9/22, 7pm

The Public Theater asked me to moderate a panel discussion on post-Katrina New Orleans, to follow a FREE reading from the "The Breach," a new play by Catherine Fillloux, Tarell Alvin McCraney, and Joe Sutton, that interweaves three flood-related tales. I've yet to read the play but have heard only good things about it. And I'm happy that it will serve as a springboard for a larger discussion. My panelists include: New York Daily News journalist Nicole Bode, who covered Katrina and its aftermath; Robert Carey, Vice President of the International Rescue Committee's Resettlement Department; and academic Lee Clarke, author of Worst Cases: Terror and Catastrophe in the Popular Imagination.

For more on the play and the panel, look here.

I'll be among the readers at a release party for the new book, Best Music Writing 2008. I'm honored to have my story, "Band on the Run in New Orleans" in there, tucked between the writing of some brilliant colleagues. (Especially to have a piece on New Orleans selected.) I'll read an excerpt. Fellow readers include: Nelson George (the book's guest editor); Gary Giddins; Jody Rosen; and Sam Kashner.
