Originally uploaded by trudeau
Shreveport Madam, a story of downtowner Annie McCune, has been out of print since 1982, says Sarah Hudson Pierce of Ritz Publications. In this hardbound re-issue historian Eric Brock has written a new intro and portrait of the late author of Shreveport Madam, Goodloe Stuck.

The original cover portrait of McCune by Shreveport painter Jasmine Morelock is intact. The re-issue is a gold-embossed, red leatherette-bound edition with polychrome cover and costs $54.95. Eric Brock and Jasmine Morelock will be on hand, says Pierce, to autograph copies of the book.

Also at the Spring St Museum to autograph books is former Shreveport mayor Jim Gardner. Gardner, a thoughtful author and gentleman, has captured his memories in two volumes. His memoirs, packed with names and places, are called Jim Gardner and Shreveport.

Sun, Dec 9, 1 to 3 pm
