Author Daniel Wolff Interviewed by Filmmaker Jonathan Demme

Writer Daniel Wolff’s books include How Lincoln Learned to Read, and You Send Me: The Life of Sam Cooke. Daniel was researching for the documentary I am Carolyn Parker, which he was producing with filmmaker Jonathan Demme, when his new book, The Fight For Home: How (part of ) New Orleans Came Back, was born. The story looks at a range of locals who not only survived the floods, but also have dealt and continue to deal with the deep corruption and poverty that affects the city.
Academy Award winning director Jonathan Demme has made countless films and documentaries including The Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia and Stop Making Sense.
