Trip to New Orleans
I apologize for my hiatus. Last week I went to New Orleans for the American Copy Editor Society conference. I’ve never been to Louisiana or on a plane before.
From top left clockwise: Klee by Donald Wigal; The Complete Stories by Flannery O’Connor; Collected Stories of Carson McCullers by Carson McCullers; Louisiana Folktales: Lupin, Bouki, and other Creole Stories in French Dialect and English Translation by Alcee Fortier. And when I exited Beckham’s Bookshop Co. on Decatur Street with O’Connor and McCullers, one of the customers said, “That’s half of Southern literature right there.”
Twenty-four states left till I’ve been to all fifty.
