coverI will be signing my book Carry Me Home A Journey Back to New Orleans at Faubourg Marigny Art & Books, 600 Frenchman Street, on Friday April 17 from 6-8 pm. Come by after French Quarter Fest and stop by. We’ll be outside trying to tap into the passing French Quarter Fest crowd, so look for us there. I won’t be trying to read into that noisy mob but I will be passing on the usual wine and such in favor of passing out tots of Old New Orleans rum to interested passers by, so stop by and have a drink. Find it at your favorite local bookstore if you can’t make this, and watch the book’s blog for future events. (Next up is the Jazz Fest Book Tent Sunday, April 26).

coverThe Maple Street Book Shop will host a signing of Carry Me Home on Saturday, February 14 from 12-2 p.m. Maple Street Book Shop is located as 7523 Maple St. in New Orleans in the Uptown/Carrollton area.

Carry Me Home is available online at Lulu.com and Amazon, but I encourage you to patronize your local bookstores listed on the side of the page.

“It belongs on the bookshelf alongside the other worthy post-Katrina works. [His] heart is absolutely in the right place, and it is that heart — that passion — that the reader will ultimately remember from this book.”
• Voices of New Orleans blog, published by Chin Music Press (publisher of Do You Know (What It Means to Miss New Orleans)

“Mark’s writing is about skill and heart… A blend of reporting, memoir and analysis, Carry Me Home is as immediate as it is reflective. It’s more than a love letter to New Orleans – it’s a survival guide for post-Katrina America. Mark shows how to go through a disaster with your soul intact.”
• Michael Tisserand, author of “Sugarcane Academy” and “The Kingdom of Zydeco”

“Mark Folse is one of the best writers in Louisiana.”
• Greg Peters, Suspect Device cartoonist
