Free First Sunday: Books on the Bayou


Books from the bayou will come alive at the Old State Capitol from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1 with readings from authors and a chance to meet an alligator – sort of.

There will be storytelling in the historic House Chamber, and families will have a chance to meet Louisiana authors. Some of the writers participating are:

·         Tommie Townsley-“Adolpheaux The Adventurous Dolphin”, “Clyde The Cajun Calf”, “Amos the Artistic Alligator”, “Dixie The Ole Dawg” and “Sabine’s First Family Reunion”

  • Cher Levis Hunt-“The Bayou Fairies”
  • David Bertrand-“Petite Ga-Tor & The Musical Grande Bois”
  • Kathy Thibodeaux-“The Easter Gator”
  • Gerard Victoriano-“Eyes on the Prize”

Louisiana has a rich history of great writing, and young readers become lifelong readers. Parents are encourage to bring their young readers to join us for a special day.

Books will be available for purchase. For more information, go to
