A new report finds that New Orleans’ eviction rate is nearly double the national average. Researchers looked at more than three years of eviction court cases. The study is a collaboration between the Jane Place Neighborhood Sustainability Initiative, a local housing rights non-profit, and Davida Finger, a professor at Loyola University’s College of Law.

Lens reporter, Michael Isaac Stein, talked with Finger and Breonne Dedecker, the program manager at Jane Place.

New Orleans has claimed several literary figures as its own -- Tennessee Williams is just the tip of the iceberg. The 19th century writer Kate Chopin was most known for her novel, "The Awakening," and Professor Barbara Ewell is an expert on the author. She joins Brian Friedman in the studio to talk about Kate Chopin's relevance in 2017.
