Shaw's SAINT JOAN to be discussed September 16th

Join us September 16th for our second gathering of the Joan of Arc Book Club at Garden District Book Shop on Prytania Street from 6-7:30 p.m. You can get a copy of the play at a discount at the store:

The event is free and the spirit is one of open discussion. Many who joined us last time came to ask questions about the Krewe de Jeanne d'Arc...some came to tell stories about Joan and/or her statue in the Quarter, and to express their thoughts about her as a perfect icon for New Orleans. Indeed, it's just as much a Joan of Arc fan club as anything...and an informal way to get together if you are curious about Joan!

We look forward to opening the discussion this time with the reading of parts of Shaw's play by local actors. Please join us and bring a friend. It's great if you come prepared to discuss and react to the play, but we welcome anyone who just wants to sit in and enjoy the conversation.
