Even though the holidays are over, I'm always on the look out for books to give as gifts, and especially books about Louisiana. Our Lt Governor, Jay Dardenne, who serves as Commissioner of the Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, has shared his list of '25 Books to Best Understand Louisiana'. They are awesome, and here are just a few of the titles for you to peruse - 'The Fighting Tigers' by Peter Finney, 'A Confederacy of Dunces' by John Kennedy Toole, and of course 'All the King's Men' by Robert Penn Warren. Check out Jay Dardenne's entire list of essential books about Louisiana and enjoy some on your own!
