NIGHT & DAY1998 DECEMBER 3-9

Wednesday 9
If Brassai was the "eye of Paris," a gentleman named Leo Touchet is the cemetery correspondent of New Orleans. He'll sign copies of his photographic book Rejoice When You Die: The New Orleans Jazz Funerals tonight at Paulie's (amidst his "Desert Sand Dunes" exhibit) and tomorrow night at the Shrine of the Black Madonna bookstore. In 113 black-and-white photos, Touchet captures the elaborately decorated caskets, the solemn, slow-stepping marshals, the curious spectators, the brass bands and the feverish dancing of this dying ritual. 5-7 p.m. Paulie's, 1834 Westheimer, 807-7271. 6:30 p.m. Thursday, December 10, at Shrine of the Black Madonna, 5309 Martin Luther King Blvd., 645-1071.
