Ever wonder why people from all over the world continue to flock to New Orleans? Even before the storms that nearly destroyed the city? Dan Baum gives us the answer in his book, Nine Lives Death and Life in New Orleans. A former staff writer for the New Yorker, Baum tells the story in a multi-voiced biography of “this dazzling, surreal, and imperiled city, told through the lives of nine characters over forty years. These nine lives are windows into every stratum of one of the most complex and fascinating cities in the world.” The Education Commission is hosting a discussion of the book October 22nd, 29th and November 5th, at 7:30 p.m. “Come and See” and jazz up your fall!
