Getting there
4140 Canal St, New Orleans, LA

Cassie Pruyn, author of Bayou St. John: A Brief History , will trace the evolution of Bayou St. John from prehistory through the present day. In this swiftly-moving talk, Pruyn will cover the bayou's role as crucial "back door route" for French colonial settlers, its life as a bustling commercial waterway, its stint as an unauthorized houseboat haven, its WPA-era "beautification," and much more. The talk will culminate with discussion and audience Q&A. ( More )
