Angola to Zydeco 

click to enlarge events_rec2-1.jpg

Reese Fuller was a reporter and editor for two Lafayette-based newspapers before becoming a teacher, and the essays in Angola to Zydeco are drawn from his reportorial travels around South Louisiana. He's covered the Angola Prison Rodeo, cockfighting in Rayne and a folk artist/hoarder in Grand Coteau. The book also includes his conversations with Louisiana luminaries (Boozoo Chavis, Marc Savoy, James Lee Burke and Elemore Morgan Jr.), but the real charm is meeting people like Greg Kerr, an Opelousas-based faith healer who works through newspaper ads. Joining Fuller will be Treme consultant and general man-about-town Davis Rogan, who promises — in Fuller's words — "to do that voodoo that he do." — Kevin Allman
