Kudos to iG Publishing , for putting out yet another wonderful book.
Like many writers, I write to instrumental music but the playlist I used while drafting Sandrine started off with this Sly and the Family Stone song. It brought me back to the funk of the 70s, Black is Beautiful, black faces on TV and in movies, Blaxploitation, and the assumption of greatness. It also echoed the save-myself attitude Sandrine learns over the course of the book.

Bill Withers is also the 70s to me, for whatever reason. And this song was on my writing playlist and got me moving. Mardi Gras Indians parade in intense, intricate costumes, a decades-long ritual separate from but parallel to the more familiar parades with floats, beads and doubloons.
Largehearted Boy: Book Notes - Dedra Johnson ("Sandrine’s Letter to Tomorrow")
Another New Orleans tradition is the brass band jazz funeral. My grandfather, Herman Sherman, Sr. The current leader is Greg Stafford, an incredible musician and human being. I heard these songs all the time when my grandfather practiced alone, with a few guys or the whole band. These songs and others were the upbeat, dare-you-not-to-second-line songs the band played as the funeral procession left the cemetery, a celebration of the life now gone. Toggle navigation MENU.
