This Self Quarantining Sucks!

Do I look bored at home or what? I asked wife Gladys what will be the highlight of our day. She said “Let’s change the sheets.”

Book Events Update!

My book tour, like so many other events, has come to a temporary end. We’ve canceled all the book signings that were set for March April and early May.  Here’s hoping but this terrible virus will be contained, and we will get back to our normal way of life in the not too distant future. We are scheduling a number of fall events for my book My Louisiana Odyssey, as well as book signings and presentations by other authors whose books will be published by The Lisburn Press.

My last book presentation was to the Bunkie Rotary club, arranged by my longtime friend Claudia Norman. Claudia and I are pictured below at a great seafood restaurant in Bunkie.   Keep checking this site, for continuing updates.  Good luck to us all in fighting a war against this terrible virus outbreak.

A Book Club Presentation!

 
The Portfolio Club of Zachary met on March 4, 2020 for an authentic French luncheon at Maison Lacour in Baton Rouge. The guest speaker was  Jim Brown who spoke about his publishing company, Lisburn Press,  and his latest book, “My Louisiana Odyssey: A Memoir.” In the book, the author shares his journey of initially “discovering” Louisiana, and then taking the reader on an excursion into country living, politics, music, art, acting, family, religion, and a host of other themes that reflect a full life well lived.

Taking a Book Tour Break!

The Brown book tour took a break over the past 10 days to celebrate Mardi Gras, then head back east. As you can see, heavy snow falling in the Blue Ridge mountains, up in Linville, North Carolina. I’ll be returning and back on the tour next week (March 3rd) and will speak and sign My Louisiana Odyssey at the weekly meeting of the Zachery Rotary Club.

A Book Tour Stop for Crawfish!

It’s crawfish season here in the Bayou State, and a regular stop for me as a travel throughout South Louisiana is Crawfish Town USA in Henderson, La. Even has-been politicians like me still have their name on a chair. I was there this week to sit in my own chair and eat lots of boiled mudbugs.  Quite a treat.
