As part of the Louisiana Bicentennial celebrations, join us for this year’s Readings in Literature and Culture program (RELIC). Dr. Charles Elliot from Southeastern Louisiana University will introduce and lead discussions on the Louisiana Purchase. The six-week  reading and discussion program will take place on Thursday evenings at the Main Library, 7:00pm, from April 12-May 17.

Readings will be done with Jon Kukla’s A Wilderness So Immense: The Louisiana Purchase and the Destiny of America, and Stephen Ambrose’s Undaunted Courage: Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West.
