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.
