Barry Gifford - SOUTHERN NIGHTS

Event date: 

Tuesday, May 21, 2019 - 6:00pm

Event address: 

Octavia Books - 513 Ocravia Street - New Orleans, LA 70115

We hope you will join us when Barry Gifford, best known as the author of Wild at Heart who has lived in and written about New Orleans in his novels and stories, comes for and evening at Octavia Books to present and sign the recently released edition of the three novels that constitute his Southern Nights trilogy: Night People, Arise & Walk, and Baby Cat Face. These Southern Gothic novels may be among the weirdest and best of Gifford's novels for their sheer velocity—the copious, raw violence; the invented religions and gods that make people do things; and the way they demonstrate how the horrors somehow cohabit—affably—with the genuine pathos and loveliness of the unforgettable characters that live in these books.

Come meet author Mary Miller when she reads and signs her new novel, BILOXI.

Mary Miller seizes the mantle of southern literature with Biloxi, a tender, gritty tale of middle age and the unexpected turns a life can take.
