An evening of poetry and prose will be led by Jean-Mark Sens and Katheryn Laborde.

Laborde has stories and articles in magazines and travel guides. Her photographs and photo essays on frontyard madonnas and Katrina refrigerator graffiti have won her a Louisiana Endowment of the Arts grant. She teaches at Xavier University in New Orleans.

This lecture is free and open to the public.

The public lecture was recently renamed the Cavanaugh Public Lectures to honor former Chancellor Robert Cavanaugh’s contributions to advancing Arts and Humanities in Central Louisiana.
