Please join us for a presentation and signing at Octavia Books 513 Octavia St. with historian Larry Powell who penned the introduction to the just reissued, New Orleans City Guide by The Federal Writers' Project.

The Federal Writers' Project was established in 1935 as part of Federal #1, a program to provide work relief for artists and professionals under the Works Progress Administration. During the next eight years, the project produced over a thousand books and pamphlets on local history, folkways, and culture, in addition to the multi-volume American Guide Series. The Louisiana project, whose publications included books on both New Orleans and the whole state, was directed by novelist and historian Lyle Saxon, author of Fabulous New Orleans and Children of Strangers. He was one of only four state project directors to remain in office for the duration of the Federal Writers' Project itself.

Lawrence N. Powell is professor of history at Tulane University, where he has taught since 1978. His specialties are the Civil War and Reconstruction; Southern history; Louisiana history and politics; and the Holocaust. Among his publications are Troubled Memory: Anne Levy, the Holocaust, and David Duke's Louisiana and New Masters: Northern Planters During the Civil War and Reconstruction. He also recently edited The New Orleans of George Washington Cable: The 1887 Census Office Report.
