Photo album on Facebook pages →The Open Mind of Lafcadio Hearn in New Orleans (Exhibition) Implementation Hearn's Open Mind, in other words his tolerance and cooperative mindset, materializes in many of his writings. In particular, Gombo Zhebès and La Cuisine Creole written during his time in New Orleans, and Two Years in the French West Indies written in the Antilles with the same Creole cultural backdrop. Hearn praised the blended culture of the Creoles, and his open-mindedness regarding the contact and fusion of cultures was a new way of thinking that crosses over to modern post-colonialism. 'The Open Mind of Lafcadio Hearn in New Orleans' will display approximately 23 pieces from the 2010 exhibition in Matsue Castle; 2 pieces from The American College of Greece; 3 of his favorite items from the Lafcadio Hearn Memorial Museum in Matsue; 26 of first editions of the books mainly from his time in New Orleans (Rare Book Collection, Special Collections, Howard-Tilton Memorial Library,
