The Calcasieu Parish Public Library will host three weekly sessions of RELIC Louisiana Characters: Biographies of the Bayou State. This program will explore the uniqueness of French pirate and privateer, Jean Lafitte, through the lens of biography.
Participants will discover this colorful personality through
Lyle Saxon's Lafitte the Pirate and engage issues involving this genre of
reading: What makes a life worth writing about?
This three-part event will take place on November 5th, 12th, and 19th from 6:00-8:00 pm at the Iowa Branch.
Registration is required for this program. Please visit the Library's event calendar or call or stop by a library branch to sign up.
The RELIC program is presented by Dr. Cheryl Ware and sponsored by the Louisiana
Endowment for the Humanities.
