Title: Louisiana saves the library
Louisiana saves the library by Emily Beck Cogburn was a funny,lighthearted read in the middle of the heavy seas of nonfiction in which I am currently immersed, one nonfiction thread leading to another until this title crossed my path. The protagonist, Louisiana Richardson, a newly single mother with two children, was a library professor until the University reassessed its fiscal responsibilities. Dear readers, Louisiana got axed from her position, and found herself in Alligator Bayou Parish trying to reinvigorate a dying library as well as balance her personal life. Louisiana faces an uphill battle against the library director and one of the board members, Mrs.Gunderson. Both are opposed to the continuation and/or expansion of the library for entirely different reasons. Pick up this lively novel and find out how Louisiana manages to save both the library and her personal life.
