Join authors Mathé Allain, Barry Jean Ancelet, Tamara Lindner, and May Rush Gwin Waggoner for a discussion of their new book "Anthologie de la littérature louisianaise d’expression française de 1682 à nos jours" at Bayou State Book Talks at the Downtown branch of the Lafayette Public Library.


About the Book:
This anthology offers an overview of French-language literature in Louisiana, from the early historical writings of the colony to the re-emergence of a francophone culture beginning in the second half of the twentieth century following the restoration of the teaching of French. This collection covers over three centuries of French writings in Louisiana, reflecting the history and literary traditions in the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries, as well as a transcription of the rich oral traditions of the Cajuns and Creoles of Louisiana.

Authors will have books available for purchase and signing. For more information please call 337.482.6027 or email
