Message in the Music: Books, Booze and Celebration!

New Orleans Art Bar

It’s my one-year anniversary of organizing our book club meetings for Black Reads and I want to celebrate this occasion with a little music – and yes, a little booze. (It’s New Orleans, right?)

In honor of this occasion and to celebrate Black Music Month, we will briefly discuss “Let Love Rule,” a memoir by Lenny Kravitz (aka my husband in my mind). "Let Love Rule" covers a vast canvas of the first 25 years of Lenny’s life, a story of a wild creative kid who grows up to become a musician, song writer, producer, actor, and overall G.O.A.T. of rock and roll. So, join us to engage in fiery debates over a glass of wine, champagne, mimosa or whatever you want to drink at the Nola Art Bar. Let’s transform our celebration into an instrument of musical liberation!!!

Let love rule, y’all!!

Here is a link to the book:

NOTE: Nola Art Bar is located next to Baldwin and Co. Bookstore. You may enter the bar through the bookstore’s courtyard.
