Join the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum for this signing and Q&A with the author Ben Forkner this Saturday, Nov. 3 at 2 pm at the museum, located at 800 Front Street in Natchitoches.
In “Audubon on Louisiana: Selected Writings of John James Audubon”, Forkner compiles and explains in depth Audubon’s essential writings on Louisiana. Beginning in 1810 as Audubon arrives in the upper Louisiana Territory, and continuing as he moves into southern Louisiana ten years later, Audubon’s journals, essays, and letters reveal his struggles to fill his portfolio with new watercolors, his discoveries throughout the region, and the transformative effect the area had on both his art and his life.
Several Audubon prints in the LSM collection are currently on display at the Wedell-Williams and Cypress-Sawmill museum in Patterson. They will remain on display until the end of November.
This event is free and open to the public.
