On Wednesday, September 17th, I will be lecturing from my book Hope & New Orleans: A History of Crescent City Street Names on the scandals and scoundrels that make up the streets of the French Quarter. Using additional photographs and maps that did not appear in the book, I’ll share even more about the martyrs and marauders New Orleans’ streets are named after. Which streets have bitter adversaries placed next to one another? Which sibling rivalries are played out in the nomenclature? And which street name is based on the 4th century slaying of over 10,000 virgins?
