    Dear Ms. Asher,

    I heard an interview with you (I can’t remember if it was WWOZ or WWNO…), and was really excited about your project involving “The Mascot!”

    I run the New Orleans chapter of The Poetry Brothel. The Brothel offers private poetry readings and features music, burlesque, tarot card readings, etc. Our first event is November 29th at the All Ways Lounge, and I was wondering if we could convince you to join us. Maybe some of our performers could do a dramatic reading of some of the excerpts you found, as you did at The Mint? I’m open to ideas. You can email me at the address above or call me at 608-698-2283. I hope to hear from you soon!

    Hi Sally

    I’m writing a book about madness at the sea and have used the Evening Star as an example of how social structures fall apart when faced with disaster. I’d very much like to use the illustration you have posted on your website. Do you have a high-res version you could send me? The image will of course be credited and I’m happy to send you a copy of the book once it’s published.

    Best wishes
