Get Ready for the New Season of HBO's Tremé

With the HBO television series TREME set to begin a new season on Sunday, we wanted to draw attention to Michael Crutcher's book TREME: RACE AND PLACE IN A NEW ORLEANS NEIGHBORHOOD, published last December as part of Georgia's series Geographies of Justice and Social Transformation. Lolis Eric Elie, a writer for the HBO show, said of Crutcher's book: "Never before has the mystery and glory of the Faubourg Tremé been brought together in one volume. Crutcher makes a cogent argument in clear prose for why this place is worthy of attention, study, and celebration.” You can read an interview with the author in our latest newsletter. Crutcher will give a talk about TREME: RACE AND PLACE IN A NEW ORLEANS NEIGHBORHOOD at Octavia Books in New Orleans on Thursday, April 21, at 6:00 p.m.
