November’s featured author will be Nathan J. Rabalais, author of Folklore Figures of French and Creole Louisiana. In Folklore Figures of French and Creole Louisiana, Nathan Rabalais examines how Louisiana’s cultural and ethnic groups shaped folklore characters and motifs. The book includes elements of Louisiana’s folklore tradition, such as the Rougarou, that are still an important park of our state’s cultural landscape.
Rabalais will be at the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum for the first LouisianaLIT event on Thursday, November 9, 2023 from 6:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. for an interview and book signing. Admission is $3 per attendee.
