St. Alphonsus Cultural Center in the Irish Channel holds a special place in the heart of author Anne Rice. On a recent visit to New Orleans, Rice and her son, Christopher Rice, hosted “An Evening with the Angels and Saints of St. Alphonsus Church” with the authors of Undead Con to raise money for the restoration of the spectacular old sanctuary. Anne Rice’s latest book is “Prince Lestat,” and Christopher’s is “The Vines.”
