A River Road Memoir
A River Road Memoir is a journey through a young girl’s idyllic childhood in the rural South to her restless adolescence when the Civil Rights struggle becomes urgent and personal to her family. The unfolding story is told through the second daughter’s eyes. Jane is a serious child, the one her father calls, “a tree full of owls,” always thinking, observing, wondering about meanings.
The McFerren Plot
It’s the rare poet who speaks in a personal voice, rarer still one with an original point of view, and rarest of all a poet with both. This collection, richly varied in technique and topic, buzzes and swarms like a cloud of bumblebees. Little Lulu rubs shoulders with Maud Gonne and Pocahontas, Helen of Troy with François Villon. But bees have patterns, and so does Martha McFerren.
Sir Bone Funk
Living Life in the Key of Triumph
Collected fiction and poetry of Eddie Tebbe
A fixture on the New Orleans music scene for years, native son Eddie Tebbe has attended multiple concerts a night, composed lyrics picked up and recorded by the likes of George Porter and Paul Sanchez, and made friends with anyone and everyone in the popular clubs. He has, as he says, felt the funk in his bones.
Local writer Colman DeKay puts it well: “Eddie writes with simplicity, urgency and honesty about the town that he loves. He’s the real deal – a New Orleanian who, despite personal setbacks, grabs the city in a gigantic life-affirming hug.“

Where Writers Wrote In New Orleans
Where Writers Wrote in New Orleans tells what it is about the city that has always attracted the creative mind, in particular writers. Author Angela Carll brings her many years as a realtor, newspaper real estate columnist and tour guide to identifying the kinds of buildings and neighborhoods that have housed our most celebrated writers --William Faulkner, Tennessee Williams, Anne Rice and Richard Ford, to name a few-- and hundreds lesser known. She includes restaurants, bars and other hangouts known for attracting a literary clientele and fills the pages with fascinating facts and secrets of the hundreds of novelists, non-fiction writers, poets and journalists who immersed themselves in the city's spirit as natives, part-time residents or long term favorite sons from the city's founding in 1718 to the present.
