I was a teenage Ellen Gilchrist evangelist. Way back when, whenever a new Ellen Gilchrist book came out I’d beg my mom to drive me to The Appalachian Bookstore in Corbin, Kentucky and I’d plunk down my hard-earned money to buy whatever the great woman had written.

If you haven’t read “Victory Over Japan” there is a gaping chasm in your education.

This is not now nor shall it ever be a literary blog (as readers of my work can certainly attest) but once in a great while if an icon in the field visits New Orleans we’ll put up all pertinent information.

Place: Garden District Book Shop, 2727 Prytania St. New Orleans, Louisiana
