Scott Ellis

Scott Ellis, author, poet and essayist, lived in the Vieux Carre in the 1980s. For him and for New Orleans this was a special time, and it imbued Scott with a deep appreciation for the many-layered history of the city. His first book, Madame Vieux Carre, The French Quarter in the Twentieth Century was published in 2009.  His current work is The Faubourg Marigny of New Orleans: A History (Louisiana State University Press, 2018).
