I'm passing this along for those of you who might be in the N.O. area 
tomorrow.  (Sorry for not knowing about it sooner -- I just now received 
this email from the bookstore.)

'Walker Percy Remembered Book Signing Tomorrow

'Tomorrow is the big day. Please join us! Saturday, September 9, from 
11:00 until noon. David Horace Harwell will be signing his new book of 
thirteen interviews, "Walker Percy Remembered: A Portrait in the Words 
of Those Who knew Him"  here at the Maple Street Book Shop. We are 
located at 7523 Maple St., New Orleans, LA.

'Our owner, Rhoda Faust, a long-time family and business friend of 
Percy's, is one of the people David Harwell interviewed.  Some of the 
others are Phin and LeRoy Percy, Walker's brothers, Shelby Foote, his 
life-long best friend, Carrie Cyprian, his housekeeper, and Nikki Barringer,
neighbor and friend. We are hoping that many of the people in the book 
come to the signing, and we welcome his old fans as well as his new 
ones.  As the dust jacket says, "Over the course of the interviews, 
readers learn intimate details of Percy's writing process; his 
interactions with community members of different ethnic, religious, and 
socioeconomic backgrounds; and his commitment to civil rights issues." '

I will add that I have met Rhoda and had extended conversations with 
her.  She is a joy and always so happy to talk about WP.  Will you be 
attending, Nikki?
