Witness to Change Book Discussion: "Bayou Farewell"

Witness to Change Book Discussion: "Bayou Farewell" Online

The LSU Libraries - Special Collections is pleased to be hosting Witness to Change: Community Conversations on Coastal Impacts, a book discussion program funded by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities. This adult reading and discussion program offers participants the opportunity to learn more about issues arising from the complex and changing human relationship to water. See how these issues are both local and global, and join your neighbors in an exploration of how others are adapting to our changing world. 

Our April 21 event will be a discussion of the book Bayou Farewell: The Rich Life and Tragic Death of Louisiana’s Cajun Coast, by Mike Tidwell. (Read a description of the book here). Jacob Gautreaux, Ph.D. candidate in Environmental History at LSU, will lead the discussion. The event will be held virtually via Zoom.
