Mass Communication professor takes 'Courtroom Carnival' to Jazz Fest

April 20, 2012

S.L. Alexander, Ph.D., associate professor of mass communication, will have a book signing at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival on May 4, 3-4 p.m. in the book tent. “Courtroom Carnival: Famous New Orleans Trials,” which was released last year to positive reviews, chronicles several colorful courtroom clashes involving Louisiana’s political and civic elite whose trials and tribulations captured widespread public attention.

“‘Courtroom Carnival’ is being very well-received, but as a journalist, I'm finding it so interesting to be the subject of interviews rather than the interviewer,” Alexander said.

The book is also being read in hourly segments on WRBH-FM by Cameron Gamble, with the last segment airing tonight, April 20 at 9 p.m.

Alexander also participated in the Tennessee Williams Literary Festival in downtown New Orleans last month as a part of the panel on “Reading and Writing about the Law," where she was joined by Loyola alumnus and former CNN and local news anchor Charles Zewe MA ’06, who was also a contributing author for “Courtroom Carnival.”
