Louisiana Author Johnette Downing Returns to Webster Parish Libraries on June 23

Webster Parish Libraries is excited to welcome back Louisiana author Johnette Downing.

Downing is the recipient of the 2017 Louisiana Writer Award, and revered internationally for her “singable” books and trickster tales. She offers a unique musical author visit experience for audiences by combining her books and her music. With their rhythmic cadences and sung refrains, books come alive for audiences through participation in the singing-reading connection, encouraging reluctant readers to get jazzed about literacy.

She will be at two WPL locations on June 23:

  • Minden Main Branch @ 10 am
  • Mack Memorial Branch in Springhill @ 2 pm
