Come out to the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum for their second monthly LouisianaLIT event on Saturday, September 16, at 10:00 a.m.

The new LouisianaLIT program will feature a book interview and signing with an author once a month, whose writings explore stories and themes that celebrate southern Louisiana Culture. “We are so excited about this new program, because it really is focused on celebrating local authors and shining a light on works that showcase our unique heritage,” explained Wetlands Discovery Center Director Jonathan Foret. “This event is produced BY the Wetlands Discovery Center FOR the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum, and we can’t wait to share this program with the community.” The first LouisianaLIT event is sold out and will take place August 24, 2023, and featured Melissa Martin’s cookbook “Mosquito Supper Club: Cajun Recipes From a Disappearing Bayou.”

September’s LouisianaLIT event will feature author Gayle Webre and illustrator Drew Beech’s children book “When I Was an Alligator,” and will include an interactive reading with costumes! Featuring fun language, page-turning onomatopoeia, and charming art, the book is a playful and informative exploration of our treasured coastal wetlands.This event will be especially fun for the younger generation of Terrebonne Parish!

Admission for LouisianaLIT is $3 for adults and $2 for kids. All kids must be accompanied by an adult. A kids activity will be included, and copies of the book will be available for purchase. Please register for the program here. 

LouisianaLIT author and work feature as they are announced each month. LouisianaLIT will take place once a month with the exception of October due to the famous Rougarou Fest, whose proceeds help to make programs like LouisianaLIT possible.
