Are you interested in New Orleans history?

We are forming a New Orleans History book group and we invite you to attend. Our goal is to learn more about this fascinating city. We may include in our class local tours and presentations by historians in the area. Our first book is “Frenchmen Desire Good Children” by John Churchill Chase, which is an amusing account of the history of New Orleans through explaining the names of her streets. This book is easy and cheap to buy on either Amazon.com or Abebooks.com. Our first meeting will be Sunday, May 22 at 3:00 at the Corner Muse Coffee House at 1381 Magazine St. We will discuss the first part of the book and discuss future meetings which might be every other Sunday afternoon. Questions can be hopefully answered by David at 473-7194.

He went back to school and did doctoral studies in philosophy for five years, concentrating on the practice of the New England Transcendentalists and the local village Lyceums to use conversation as a means of education. David was motivated by this model to start his own Lyceum . He started the Lyceum as an independent adult educational center in the mountains of North Carolina in 2000. The school was relocated to New Orleans in 2003. David specializes in conversations around philosophy (philocafes), literature/poetry, and films.
