The Journey of the Coffee Table Book — Part I
In September 2010, I had invited the Pelican Publishing team to come see the “Meanwhile, Back at Cafe Du Monde…” New Orleans show at Ralph & Kacoo’s Restaurant in the French Quarter. Dr. Calhoun, Owner/Publisher, and his team loved the show and embraced my idea of creating a coffee table book with the stories, recipes and pictures. After presenting them an outline a few months later, we went through months of discussions with the Pelican team led by Editor-in-Chief, Nina Kooij; my literary agent, Anna Olswanger at the Liza Dawson Agency in New York; and my attorney, Jeff Spellerberg in Los Angeles. It was a new world and scary at times, but very exciting.
