Nathaniel Rich in conversation with To Be Announced (TBA): King Zeno Tuesday, January 9th 6-7:30PM New Orleans, 1918. The birth of jazz, the Spanish flu, an ax murderer on the loose. The lives of a traumatized cop, a conflicted Mafia matriarch, and a brilliant trumpeter converge--and the Crescent City gets the rich, dark, sweeping novel it so deserves. New Orleans, a century ago: a city determined to reshape its destiny and, with it, the nations. Downtown, a new American music is born. In Storyville, prostitution is outlawed and the police retake the streets with maximum violence. In the Ninth Ward, laborers break ground on a gigantic canal that will split the city, a work of staggering human ingenuity intended to restore New Orleans's faded mercantile glory. The war is ending and a prosperous new age dawns. But everything is thrown into chaos by a series of murders committed by an ax-wielding maniac with a peculiar taste in music. In New Orleans, a city built on swamp, nothing stays buried long. This book is available in hardcover ($28.00). Nathaniel Rich in conversation with TBA, discussing King Zeno. Nathaniel will sign books following the discussion. If you are unable to attend, you must call the book shop to order signed books. Event date: Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm Event address: Garden District Book Shop 2727 Prytania Street New Orleans, LA 70130
