UL's Center for Louisiana Studies giving book lovers opportunity to learn about Louisiana authors
Bayou State Book Talks, a series of talks and book signings that started last night and will be held monthly
LAFAYETE (KADN) — The University of Louisiana at Lafayette's Center for Louisiana Studies is giving book lovers the opportunity to learn more about Louisiana authors. Yesterday evening the center launched Bayou State Book Talks, which is a series of talks and book signings that will be held featuring different authors throughout our community.
"This is a way for us to connect with the community on a grander scale. It really allows the community to put faces with the names of the authors of the books that they've been reading, to learn about new books, and just to kind of get an idea of what goes into creating a book and getting it published," says Jennifer Ritter Guidry, assistant director of program and special projects at Center for Louisiana Studies.
The events will be held the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm in the South Regional Library. The Bayou State Book Talks series is a partnership between UL and the Lafayette Public Library System. For more information about the series visit cls.louisiana.edu.
