Learn all there is to know about the rougarou and all his Louisiana francophone friends with this special presentation at the Ascension Parish Library in Gonzales, featuring Nathan J. Rabalais, Ph.D., author of Folklore Figures of French and Creole Louisiana. Examining the ways our state’s many diverse ethnic and cultural groups have expressed themselves and interacted through folklore characters and motifs throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Rabalais points out how some elements of those traditions have remained integral to the state’s cultural identity. A book signing will follow the discussion. Registration is required by calling (225) 647-3955. myapl.org.
