LOCAL AUTHOR BRINGS HISTORY TO LIFE

West Florida Public Library kicks off their first Tuesday Talks with guest author, M. M. Le Blanc, for a discussion of her new book, “Evangeline: Paradise Stolen”. The award-winning novel is a powerful must-read novel about the true story of the French Acadians (who later became the Louisiana Cajuns) unwittingly involved in a political game of intrigue and espionage against the glamour of 18th century Versailles Palace.

 

The novel has received substantial praise, including NPR Florida Book Review comments:

“Evangeline: Paradise Stolen is a positively fascinating read and difficult to put down. LeBlanc’s characters … live; they breathe, and as they dance across the book’s pages they evoke a sense of knowing within the reader,”

 

M. M. Le Blanc, in addition to being an award winning author, has created and inspired audiences in film and television as well. She won an International Writing Fellowship to the prestigious Fondation d’Art de France, was named one of the Top 10 Outstanding Young Working Women in the USA, is member of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and writer/director of the acclaimed PBS Documentary “Cajun Renaissance Man.”

 

Tuesday Talks is a monthly series that begins at 6:00 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Main Library, located at 239 North Spring Street in downtown Pensacola. “West Florida Public Library is committed to inspiring life-long learning and growth in the community,” said Darlene Howell, Library Administrator. “This is a great way we can help the reader, or prospective writer, to get inside the author’s head and truly experience the magic of story telling.”
