This Old House Rebuilds New Orleans

For the second project of the season, This Old House travels to New Orleans, Louisiana, to help a fourth-generation resident of the Lower 9th ward return home, while following stories of rebuilding and recovery throughout the city. Host Kevin OConnor visits Musicians Village with founder Harry Connick, Jr. to see how he, along with childhood friend Branford Marsalis, are providing new housing for the citys musicians through Habitat for Humanity. In historic Holy Cross, along the banks of the Mississippi River, homeowner Rashida Ferdinand shows Kevin why she loves her c. 1892 flood-damaged shotgun single and artists studio, and how she plans to restore and expand them after a two-year vacancy. Master carpenter Norm Abram meets up with her builder to assess the challenges of building in post-Katrina New Orleans, while homeowner Marna David shows Kevin how she managed to renovate her own shotgun single in Holy Cross, twice once before the storm, and once after.

New Orleans Writers Museum Project Announced

New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) August 28, 2008

The Louisiana Writers Foundation (LWF) has announced plans to create a museum honoring writers who have lived in New Orleans that will also provide services to support those presently living and writing in the city.

 

The announcement was originally scheduled three years ago this week, but Hurricane Katrina scuttled the effort. “New Orleans is and was a wonderful place for writers, and a place to honor their legacies,” stated writer and NPR commentator, Andrei Codrescu. New Orleans has a rich literary tradition dating back more than two centuries. Writers such as Mark Twain, William Faulkner, Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams and William S. Burroughs have made New Orleans their home. Perhaps lesser known is that other famed writers have lived there including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Walt Whitman, Eugene O’Neill and Charles Bukowski.

 

“New Orleans has historically had a thriving literary community and the planned New Orleans Writers Museum will be a living, educational memorial for visitors and residents alike,” stated Robert Smallwood, a writer and founder of LWF. Smallwood’s book, “The Five People You Meet in Hell: Surviving Katrina,” was the first eyewitness account published of the hurricane and its violent aftermath in downtown New Orleans in August, 2005.

 

“The past is illustrious, but writers continue to live and write here,” Codrescu stated. “Such a museum would function ideally as both a place to educate people about our writing tradition, and a clearinghouse for writers who choose New Orleans for their literary habitat.”

 

 

Several locations within the New Orleans French Quarter are being reviewed as a possible site for the New Orleans Writers Museum.

 

 

The Louisiana Writers Foundation is a nonprofit organization created to support the efforts of Louisiana writers and to preserve the literary heritage of the state hardest hit by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
