On Saturday, October 17, from 12 to 1:15 PM in Baton Rouge, Julie will be reading with an incredible lineup of Louisiana poets, including ZACHARY RICHARD (famed as a Cajun musician, he is also an accomplished French-language poet, with many books published in Canada).  Others on the bill are PETER COOLEY, MARTHA SERPAS, Louisiana Poet Laureate DARRELL BOURQUE, and SADDI KHALI.  We’ll be in Senate Committee Room E of the State Capitol.  The event is part of the Louisiana Book Festival, a daylong affair with lots of readings and talks by writers like Rick Bragg and Ernest Gaines.  Y’all come!
