A new book tries to tell the underground story of New Orleans, using an underground medium... WHQR'S Megan Williams sat down with the anthology's creator, Ethan Clark.
Asheville, NC – Stories Care Forgot captures a snapshot of New Orleans' thriving underground street culture through the eyes, and words, of the activists, punk artists, and do-it-yourself-ers who gravitated there from across the country. They recorded their lives in 'zines -- photocopied pamphlets they wrote, illustrated, and passed around. While many of the originals were lost to the storm, the book is a record of that subculture.
Ethan Clark reads Monday night at 7pm at Rebel Books.
