Professor of Architecture, Dr. Eugene Cizek has recently contributed writings and illustrations to Angela Carll's, "Where Writers Wrote in New Orleans."
Book Summary :
What is it about New Orleans that has always attracted and nourished the creative mind? The answer, according to Eugene Cizek, PhD, F.A.I.A in his introduction to Where Writers Wrote in New Orleans; is the original Creole architecture of the city that maximizes use of light and air, a tropical environment that offers, in his words, “the spirit of time, place and humanity.” Angela Carll includes restaurants, bars and other hangouts known for attracting a literary clientele. She filled the pages with fascinating facts and “secrets” of the hundreds of writers who immersed themselves in the city’s spirit. Read about natives, part-time residents or long term favorite sons from the city’s founding in 1718 to the present. This is a beautiful book with a watercolor rendering of Tennessee Williams’ house on the cover by Eugene Cizek. Contained inside are pen and ink drawings by the late Lloyd Sensat, with a few by Cizek. It serves as both a fine gift book and a treasured reference work.
There will be a book signing at the Garden District Gallery on Saturday, November 16th from 1:00-3:00pm
