Darrell Bourque will read from his newest work, If You Abandon Me, Comment Je Vas Faire: An Amédé Ardoin Songbook. Bourque explores the life of Creole musician Amédé Ardoin (1898-1942) in this haunting collection of inverted sonnets. Using imagination and historical research, Bourque delves into Ardoin, an influential but enigmatic artist. This chapbook is the first installment of The Louisiana Series of Cajun and Creole Poetry (La Série de Louisiane de Poésie des Acadiens et Créoles) and is published by Yellow Flag Press.

Thursday, May 15 | 3 p.m. – 4:15 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public.
