From 5:00-7:00PM on Saturday, August 11th children’s author Denise Walter McConduit will be signing her children’s books: D.J. and the Debutante Ball, D.J. and the Jazz Fest, D.J. and the Zulu Parade.
A New Orleans native, Denise McConduit was born to a very large family. The fourth of thirteen children, she regularly entertained her younger siblings with stories. Early on, she learned that she loved reading and drawing, art and dancing, and--not surprisingly--writing.
She began writing poetry as a child. Her first magazine article was published in 1982, when she wrote “Youth Job Opportunities” for Black New Orleans magazine. She has since had stories published in Essence magazine and poems published in the New Orleans Tribune magazine. Two of her poems are even on display in the New Orleans Riverwalk’s Book of Legends. She still keeps active in the poetry world and is currently serving as secretary for the board of directors of the New Orleans Poetry Forum.
