I WANNA DO THAT! - Echo Olande and Yehonathan Goldstein - Covid-safe booksigning

Please visit us for a "Covid-safe" sidewalk booksigning featuring Echo Olande and Yoni Goldstein, co-authors of I WANNA DO THAT!: The Magic of Mardi Gras Marching Krewes. The signing will be in front of the bookstore, weather-permitting. Please join us if you can anytime between noon and 2pm to meet the authors and get a signed copy. Masks are required.

The move from spectator to participant is a quantum leap. Yet each Mardi Gras in New Orleans, thousands of people make that leap, abandoning inhibition and reveling in the ever-growing creative phenomenon of marching krewes.

To celebrate this untold story, I Wanna Do That!  bursts with over 200 full color photographs that document this important New Orleans-centered cultural movement.

"' a must-have book for Carnival aficionados. Leafing through the 272-page volume, illustrated with lusciously funky photos by Ryan Hodgson-Rigsbee and Patrick Niddrie, seems especially precious these days, since the coronavirus has put the kibosh on most upcoming Mardi Gras-season events." - Doug MacCash, Staff Writer, The Times-Picayune/New Orleans Advocate.
