The Salon de Jeanne d'Arc, a full day conference about all things Joan, including panels, theatrical presentations, and a chance to meet the Krewe de Jeanne d'Arc and learn all about the Joan of Arc Parade (and join the krewe!)--will be held Saturday, September 20th at Loyola University from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Learn about Joanie on the Pony, the iconic French Quarter statue, and how you can help with her much-needed repairs; find out about our new Joan of Arc Library Project, where you can find endless resources about the Maid; Understand the real story behind Joan's success (Queen Yolande of Aragon) from the author of the breakthrough book "The Maid and the Queen", learn about what a medieval Twelfth Night might have been like (compared to our current celebration in the French Quarter on Joan's Jan. 6th birthday) and see two wildly different theatrical presentations about Joan: Shakespeare's Henry VI's unflattering portrayal versus a new one-woman show about Joan's preparations for the Siege of Orleans. Grab your sword, your notebook, and your checkbook--if you want to join the krewe!--and head to this FREE gathering of fans of Joan. Full schedule at ... See MoreSee Less
