Loujon Press book AND movie (1 Viewer)

Hi All:

I already posted a notice in the newbie forum about my book, Bohemian New Orleans: The Story of the Outsider and Loujon Press, which will be published in June by the University Press of Mississippi. Here are links to the publisher's description and to its page on amazon.com:

I am also involved in a documentary film on Loujon which is currently in production. The film is being shot and directed by Wayne Ewing, who has done three very fine documentaries on Hunter S. Thompson. He has filmed several hours of interviews with Louise Webb, with a number of her friends and associates, and with experts on the book arts and book history. From all indications, this will be a very entertaining film and an important literary/cultural document as well.

Here is a link to Wayne's website. There's no mention yet of the Loujon project, but you can get a sense of what he's done with the Thompson films.

Wayne plans to complete the film by November.
