Event Description
Bayou Maharajah Special Screening

A one-show-only screening of Bayou Maharajah, the new documentary with rare concert footage, photographs and interviews, which illustrate a portrait of late pianist James Booker, whose great talent masked personal struggles with substance abuse and isolation.


Live New Orleans R&B beforehand on piano by former Leon Redbone pianist Tom Roberts, and a special reading by Terrance Hayes.  Hayes is the author of Lighthead (Penguin, 2010), which won the National Book Award for Poetry; Wind in a Box (2006); Hip Logic (2002), which won the 2001 National Poetry Series and was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award; and Muscular Music (1999), winner of the Kate Tufts Discovery Award. He has received a Whiting Writers Award, a Pushcart Prize, three Best American Poetry selections, as well as fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and the Guggenheim Foundation.
