A vividly described and intensely personal memoir, My Bayou charts a personal and spiritual transformation along the fabled banks of Bayou St. John in New Orleans.
When Constance Adler moved to New Orleans, she began what has become a lasting love affair with the city, and especially the bayou - a living entity and the beating heart of local culture. Rites of passage, celebrations, mysterious accidents, and magic all take place on its banks, leading Adler to a vibrant awareness of the power of being part of a community. That faith is tested in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and is ultimately proven right, as Bayou St. John begins to rebuild.
Constance Adler discusses and signs her book, My Bayou.
