    December 9, 2019, 6:30 PM - 7:45 PM @ Meeting Room

    Local author Nola Nash will be talking about her first published book, Crescent City Moon. On the eve of her twenty-first birthday in 1820s New Orleans, Zéolie Cheval discovers the mangled body of her father murdered in his bed. As she struggles to figure out what happened, a maniacal voice settles into the recesses of her mind. When the priest sent to comfort Zéolie is killed, unnoticed in a house swarming with police, she is launched into a tangled web of mystery. Originally from south Louisiana, Nola Nash now makes her home in Brentwood, with her three children. Her biggest inspiration was the city of New Orleans that gave her at an early age a love of magic, mystery, and history. Nola has a Master’s degree in education, which means, when she isn’t writing, you can find her teaching middle school English and co-directing the school plays and musicals.
