HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University's Friends of Sims Library will host a book-themed
tea on Saturday, March 9, from 2 until 4 p.m. on the second floor of the library.
Guests will enjoy an array of teas, sandwiches and desserts, and optional unlimited mimosas will be available.
The guest speaker will be New Orleans author Christine Wiltz, whose book "The Last Madam: A Life in the New Orleans Underworld" told the scandalous tale of the notorious Norma Wallace against a background of the vice and corruption that flourished in the city over a number of decades.
Wiltz is also the author of "Glass House" and the "Neal Rafferty Mysteries;" her latest book, "Shoot the Money," has been described as a "racy gumbo of suspense, comedy, and 'sisters-in-crime'."
The tea is free for Friends of Sims Library members and $25 for non-members, which includes a one-year membership. For reservations or any other information about FOSL, please contact Janie Branham at 985-549-2186 or via email at FOSL@southeastern.edu by March 4.
