COLD HOT: Book signing and conversation with author Sergio Poroger


Images can generate sounds, albeit imaginary ones. Based on this, Brazilian photographer and journalist Sergio Poroger journeyed through the Southeastern United States in December 2014, putting together the collection of photographs available in this new book, sponsored by the Lafayette (LA) Convention and Visitor Center and other supporters. Poroger researched the region, its people, and its place for almost two years, traveling nearly 2,000 miles, and visiting such legendary places as the “Crossroads” in Clarksdale, MS; rural Louisiana juke joints; Preservation Hall in New Orleans; and dozens more. The author will speak at 1:00pm and will be available for signing and informal conversation until 4:00pm.
