Holiday Book Signings at The Roosevelt New Orleans Recognize
Local Celebrity Authors

NEW ORLEANS, La. - (Nov. 3, 2011) - The Roosevelt New Orleans will recognize local authors and celebrities with three book-signing events in the hotel: Troy Gilbert and Kenneth Holditch, Dec. 6, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.; Peggy Scott Laborde and Tom Fitzmorris, Dec. 8, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.; and Bryan Batt, Dec. 10, from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Laborde and Fitzmorris will be signing their latest book, "Lost Restaurants of New Orleans," a pictorial celebration of former eateries in New Orleans, complete with some of the recipes that made the restaurants famous. In addition to anecdotes by the authors, the book features glimpses into the city's rich culinary past from New Orleans notables such as JoAnn Clevenger of Upperline Restaurant, Batt and others. Laborde is producer and host of the WYES-TV program "Steppin' Out" and has achieved recognition for her extensive efforts in conserving the arts and history of New Orleans. Fitzmorris is a food writer and host of WWL-AM's "Food Show."

Batt, the actor best known for his role on the Emmy Award-winning drama "Mad Men," has authored "Big, Easy Style: Creating Rooms You Love to Live In." The book showcases rooms that make Batt smile, with pages of rich photography featuring the work of many designers framed by his own entertaining maxims on color, pattern and more. He also has performed in numerous Broadway and off-Broadway productions, including "Jeffrey," "Sunset Boulevard" and others and is owner, along with Tom Cianfichi, of Magazine Street's Hazelnut interior design shop.

Gilbert and Holditch, along with Greg Picolo, are authors of "Dinner With Tennessee Williams," which is part food memoir and part cookbook with a fresh look at the world of one of America's most notable writers. Gilbert is the author of the "Café Degas Cookbook" and co-author of "New Orleans Kitchens." Holditch is professor emeritus at the University of New Orleans, editor of the "Tennessee Williams Journal," co-author of "Tennessee Williams and the South" and co-editor of the Library of America edition of Williams' works. Picolo is the chef at Bistro Maison de Ville.

All three events will be held in the hotel's lobby near the world-famous Sazerac Bar.
