Stories Care Forgot
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.
By Megan V. Williams
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.
