Please join us on Saturday, November 7, at 11:30 AM, when we will be hosting Johnette Downing, who will be reading from and signing her 3 new books, “Louisiana is the Jewel of the Deep South,” “Ten Gators in the Bed,” and “Bugs on the Rug.”

Acclaimed musician, singer, and author Johnette Downing once again shares her reverence for the Pelican State with young readers. In Louisiana, the Jewel of the Deep South, Downing combines all of the unique and historical facts about the state into a delightful and educational picture book. Originally penned as a song by the same name, the book serves as a child’s introduction to the state’s symbols, realized in both the melodious text and the earthy illustrations.

From the humble crawfish to the soaring brown pelican, the howling Catahoula to the bashful black bear, Downing familiarizes children with many interesting facts about their home. The iconic images of Louisiana are captured in abundant illustrations, which embody the bountiful cultural history of the state. Awash in color, detail, and accuracy, the artwork brings the state’s history to life!
