Learn the history of Creole homes at Destrehan library

DESTREHAN - John H. Lawrence, Director of Museum Programs for the Historic New Orleans Collection, will give a visual presentation based on the book Creole Houses: Traditional Homes of Old Louisiana at the St. Charles Parish East Regional Library on February 23 at 2:00 p.m. The library is located at 100 River Oaks Dr. in Destrehan.

Creole Houses was selected as one of the top nonfiction works of 2007 by Times-Picayune book editor Susan Larson. In the book, Lawrence provides written commentary for the photographs taken by Steve Gross and Sue Daley.

Creole houses are found throughout Louisiana and are a blend of French and Spanish colonial styles with West Indian, African, and Native American influences.

Appreciation of Creole culture will be heightened as Lawrence presents in-depth information about the architectural design and interior decoration of the houses as well as the society that produced them.

The program will last approximately 45 minutes and includes a brief overview of the book's contents along with more detailed looks at a few of the buildings featured in the book.

A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation. Books will not be available for purchase at the event, but Lawrence will be available to sign any books that were purchased in advance.

Please call the library staff at 985-764-2366 for further information.Read More...
