A Home Is Where A House Was is an online poetry event series where local New Orleans poets introduce themselves and their work in preparation, in discussions on race and place. New Orleans has one of the highest eviction rates in the country and, during the pandemic, it has one of the highest risks of future displacement due to eviction. This three part series seeks to highlight what that means for the interiority of the people of the city, as well as what it means to fight back.
