National Short Story Month: Barb Johnson Reads “The Invitation”

Bayou’s celebration of National Short Story Month continues with UNO’s own Barb Johnson reading an excerpt from “The Invitation,” a short story collected in her acclaimed 2009 book, More of This World or Maybe Another.

In the book, the lives of four unlikely friends intersect on the backstreets of New Orleans. Living amid poverty and violence, these fragile heroes of the American underclass redefine our notions of family, redemption, and love.
