Le Petit Salon: A Vieux Carré Memoir

Mar 17, 2017

While most clubs in New Orleans come together to parade, one of the oldest is all about the written word. Le Petit Salon formed in 1924 as a space for women intellectuals in the French Quarter to gather after performances at Le Petit Theatre. The salon is still around today, and Genevieve Trimble is the longest running member. In this edition of NOLA Life Stories, Genevieve describes her return to New Orleans in the 1940s and the literary encounters that followed.

This NOLA Life Stories interview was conducted by Mark Cave for The Historic New Orleans Collection and produced for WWNO by Sarah Holtz.
