June 26: Bourbon Street, Brass Bands and New Louisiana Cultural Vistas

Summer 2014 Pub FlyerThe new issue of Louisiana Cultural Vistas hits mailboxes and newsstands this month. We’ll celebrate the issue with a publication party on Thursday, June 26, at the Louisiana Humanities Center in New Orleans.

Contributors (and regular LCV columnists) Richard Campanella and Matt Sakakeeny discuss their new books, excerpted in the issue. Buy your copy of Bourbon Street: A History and Roll With It: Brass Bands in the Streets of New Orleans at the event from Garden District Books. Our favorite Louisiana-based sponsors, Abita and Zapp’s, provide refreshments at 6pm, and talks start at 7pm. And for the first time, we’ll repair next door to an official after-party with our new neighbors, Cellardoor.

The Louisiana Humanities Center is located at 938 Lafayette Street. Parking is available in the white-lined spaces behind the building. The event is free and open to the public. For more info, contact Brian Boyles at boyles@leh.org or 504.620.2632.
