Louisiana Anthology Interviews Levees Not War

Louisiana Anthology [1]Usually when Levees Not War is involved in an interview [2], we do the interrogating. But now, we’re happy to report, the tables have been turned: Levees Not War is the subject of an in-depth interview with the editors of the Louisiana Anthology [3], Bruce R. Magee and Stephen Payne, professors at Louisiana Tech in Ruston. The Levees Not War Q&A is the second of a two-part interview with blogger and author Mark LaFlaur, focusing on Elysian Fields [4], a novel of New Orleans, that was posted on June 28 [5] and July 5 [1]. Click here [6] for the iTunes podcasts.

Bruce and Stephen have kindly posted two pieces from Levees Not War on the Louisiana Anthology website, “Is Katrina More Significant Than September 11? [7]” and “Disaster Capitalism Will Solve U.S. Budget Deficit? [8] Ask New Orleans and Wisconsin” (original links here [9] and here [10]).

At about 39:30 minutes in, the interview includes a 5-minute shout-out to the Rising Tide [11] conference on the future of New Orleans held annually in mid-September at Xavier University (Sept. 13, 2014)—affordably priced and always interesting—with mentions of prominent keynote speakers such as Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, Harry Shearer, John Barry, and David Simon. Click here [11] for more information about Rising Tide 2014.

The interview was conducted by phone in late April. Since the Q&A with Bruce and Stephen, Elysian Fields’s presence in bookstores, especially in the South, has expanded significantly. The book is now available at the stores listed below: support your local independent bookstores. We hope you’ll spread the word among your book-readin’ friends, and we welcome your suggestions of indie booksellers near you who you think might want to carry Elysian Fields.
