Andre Codrescu On New Orleans Public Libraries

Southeast Louisiana’s favorite in-house ex-pat social critic, Andre Codrescu, wrote this piece recently on the state of N.O. libraries, on books, reading and the general state of these institutions. Good thoughts, miserable situation.

  1. Hi Larissa,

    Codrescu usually isn’t depressing. Usually he’s hilarious. But Katrina really threw him for a loop, if some of his recent publications are evidence. I hope he has reconsidered, but last I read he was ready to leave New Orleans to the tourist bureau and let it descend into some “glorious mess, like Venice.”
