In honor of our celebration of urban literary excellence, BeBATONROUGE and Councilwoman Erika L. Green have partnered for a series called “Literary Gems”. “Literary Gems” serves as a spotlight for the authors and avid readers right in our backyard. It features documentarian and author Dr. Rachel Emanuel and three book club members from the community.
Watch the series below and share some of your favorite reads with us, or the name of your book club in the comments!
