Happy Holidays from Room 220

Event: Sep 19, 2011


Note: I stupidly omitted The Definition of Bounce (see above), a fantastic book by 10th Ward Buck , from the Room 220 holiday gift guide. It was sitting on my filing cabinet, instead of on my bookshelf, from which I pulled the guide’s selections.

Room 220 featured an excerpt of text and photos from The Definition of Bounce earlier this year. As you and this Bourbon Street bar caller would agree, it would make a great gift for any fan of books, New Orleans, and/or bounce.

See you in the New Year.
