New Orleans Carnival Krewes: The History, Spirit and Secrets of Mardi Gras

New Orleans Carnival Krewes coverFEATURED NON-FICTION:

“New Orleans is practically synonymous with Mardi Gras. Both evoke the parades, the beads, the costumes, the food–the pomp and circumstance. The carnival krewes are the backbone of this Big Easy tradition.

Every year, different krewes put on extravagant parties and celebrations to commemorate the beginning of the Lenten season. Historic krewes like Comus, Rex and Zulu that date back generations are intertwined with the greater history of New Orleans itself. Today, new krewes are inaugurated and widen a once exclusive part of New Orleans society.

Through careful and detailed research of over three hundred sources, including fifty interviews with members of these organizations, author and New Orleans native Rosary O’Neill explores this storied institution, its antebellum roots and its effects in the twenty-first century.” (via Amazon)
