2:00 to 2:45 p.m. Pas de Jeanne, Pas de Nouvelle Orleans: NO JOAN, NO NEW ORLEANS! Local author Bobby Matherne in conversation with Consul General of France in New Orleans Gregor Trumel about Joan's influences on history and current day culture and politics. A comparison of the different interpretations and celebrations of Joan in France and the United States will be included.
