This week's Chautauqua Nexus at the University of Louisiana at Monroe will feature speaker Bob Teague on "The Cottonport Project". It is set for Friday, Oct. 9th at 4:30 p.m. on the sixth floor of the library.
The Chautauqua Nexus web site has the following information
about the upcoming talk: "The Cottonport Project,"
which started with two area writers looking for a forum for their
work and the work of other area artists, has evolved over the
past year into a hothouse for creativity in northeastern Louisiana.
The weekly reading series, while not a school in the traditional
artistic sense of the word, has provided fertile ground for the
cross-pollination of forms, ideas and styles. The end goal of
the project is to build a framework for artistic voices that
represent the cultures and peoples of northeastern Louisiana.
It has already expanded from it's coffeehouse birthplace into
the streets with a quarterly magazine, regular art happenings,
members in various stages of publication, and most importantly
several non-writers who have been inspired to explore the art
form as writers themselves."
