From this recently digitized mid-1880s New Orleans newspaper, modern readers gain insight into social, racial, and ethnic relations throughout the city as well as glimpses of an incredibly diverse array of nationalities living across the city, prison life, local-level politics, and more.
Murder, vengeful ghosts, and strange visions at the bottoms of cups of tea... Join us as we prep for Halloween with a screening of four Kwaidan, or ghost stories, in the critically acclaimed film adapted from stories by Lafcadio Hearn.
See some of the rare books from which these stories come and enjoy free pizza at Intermission!
