Private Book Launch Party

This is a private party celebrating the PRC’s new book. The invite list includes Heritage Club members and those associated with the projects featured in the book.

Building on the Past: Saving Historic New Orleans chronicles modern efforts to save the soul of a 300-year-old city and ensure its bright future honors its rich past. Told through a series of inspiring building profiles and gripping narratives, this book shares the stories of the people behind the places and their journeys to preserve the history as well as the bricks and mortar.
