Busy Week Ahead
The week of September 22-26 will be a busy one on the LSU Eunice campus with music, poetry and politics providing students and guests a mix of activities to attend.
Wednesday at noon in the Union will be The Well Reds, an alternative pop-rock band from Atlanta. They have also played a variety of festivals in the Southeast, and their rise in local prominence has led to sold-out shows in premiere music venues such as Eddie's Attic, Smith's Olde Bar and Hard Rock Cafe's Velvet Underground.
Thursday at 11:30 a.m. in the LeDoux Library will be Louisiana Poet Laureate Ava Haymon and later that night at Café Mosaic for the Louisiana Review Reading Series. Haymon is the author of the poetry collections "Why the House Is Made of Gingerbread," "Kitchen Heat," "The Strict Economy of Fire" and the forthcoming "Eldest Daughter," all published by LSU Press. She teaches poetry writing in Baton Rouge, and directs a writers' retreat center in the mountains of New Mexico.
Thursday night, the Student Government Association and the Eunice Chamber of Commerce will host a political forum for local candidates seeking election to local offices from city council to school board. The forum will be held in the Health Technology Building at 6 p.m.
Next week, the Performing Arts Series will host former Louisiana Poet Laureate Darrell Bourque in the LeDoux Library at noon.
