Join Louisiana native Jane Goette as she presents her recent release, A River Road Memoir.

Visit with author Jane Goette as she takes us on a journey through a young girl’s idyllic childhood in the rural South to her restless adolescence when the Civil Rights struggle becomes urgent and personal to her family.

Jane is three years old when her family moves into an old house on River Road in Donaldsonville, bordered by pastures and endless sugarcane fields. Though set in the 1950s and ’60s, the conflicts reflected in this book are familiar as Americans continue to battle over the nation’s identity and values.

Goette is a teacher, writer, and mother of three. She currently lives in Virginia.

A reception and book signing will follow the presentation.

This event is brought to you by Ascension Parish Library and co-sponsored by DVille Press. For more information, call (225) 473-8052.
