Krazy Kat: New Orleans and the Birth of the Modern Comic Strip: Michael Tisserand

New Orleans Author George Herriman's "Krazy Kat" is widely considered the best comic strip in history and has influenced everything from Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse to Charles M. Schulz's "Peanuts" and Bill Watterson's "Calvin and Hobbes." In pictures, comics and film, Michael Tisserand shows how Herriman's childhood in New Orleans' Tremé neighborhood and his experiences "passing" for white influenced a comic strip that is still considered revolutionary today.

Michael Tisserand is a New Orleans author and former editor of Gambit whose most recent book, Krazy: George Herriman, A Life in Black and White, was named in the New York Times' 100 Notable Books of 2017, and was honored with the Eisner Award for best book about comics. Tisserand's other books include Sugarcane Academy and The Kingdom of Zydeco, which received the ASCAP Deems Taylor award for music writing.

This original game of thrones features a heartless tyrant who will stop at nothing to secure England's crown.

William Shakespeare's stunning portrait of Machiavellian genius and the murderous quest for absolute power, comes alive on the Marquette Theatre stage directed by Dr. Laura Hope. In this original game of thrones we are engaged by a cunning, charismatic, and heartless tyrant who will stop at nothing to secure England's crown.

England's civil Wars of the Roses is replaced by a period of promised peace, but the scheming Richard, Duke of Gloucester, plans to take the throne following the death of his newly crowned brother, Edward IV, by seduction, betrayal, or any means necessary. Twisted inside and out by bitter discontent and determined to remove any impediment to the crown, Richard hurtles down a path of moral demise and military destruction, setting the stage for a new hero to rescue England and a new house to reign.
