In honor of its 40th anniversary, PRC presents  ·  New Orleans  ·  Days and Nights in the Dreamy City.

In the final book of the Preservation Resource Center trilogy (Life in an Epic City, 2006, and New Orleans’ Favorite Shotguns, 2007), author and editor Mary Fitzpatrick teams up with film location manager, producer and scriptwriter Virginia McCollam for an around-the-clock trip to the favorite spots of more than 100 insiders.

Beloved streets, cafés, views, bars, coffee shops, neighborhoods, events, all-nighters, weekends, and po-boys fill this delightful little picture book illustrated with quirky and beautiful photographs. From celebrities like John Stirratt of WILCO, David Simon of “Tremé,” and the mumblecore Duplass Brothers to the powder room attendant at Brennan’s, the Harley-Davidson dealer, the pediatrician, nanny, silversmith, developer, and homeless drifter who was a fixture on Julia Street for four decades, there’s a corner of New Orleans for everybody.  ·  New Orleans  ·  Days and Nights in the Dreamy City takes you around the clock and in and out of your comfort zone.
