October Literary Road Trip Box: Louisiana

October Literary Road Trip Box Louisiana

Introducing our October Literary Road Trip Box themed to the state of Louisiana. Crawfish, jazz, the bayou...just a few things that come to mind when we think of this colorful and diverse state.

The featured book is Attica Locke's The Cutting Season.

This twisty murder mystery is set in Northern Louisiana on the fictitious Belle Vie plantation. Plantation caretaker Caren Gray is a former law student who runs the modern day events on Belle Vie, trying to balance hosting weddings and corporate events on the lush grounds with educational reenactments to remind visitors about the plantation's antebellum past. When a body of a migrant worker is discovered, and a Belle Vie employee is charged with the murder, Gray attempts to uncover the truth of the case. Fast-paced and full of surprises, this atmospheric story will take you to Louisiana.

Our indie bookstore collaboration for October is with The Conundrum Books and Puzzles located in St. Francisville, Louisiana. The owner of The Conundrum, Missy Couhig, kindly sent us her store branded bookmarks and stickers. The Conundrum is a fabulous bookstore that offers both bestsellers and regional favorites.

We've also included their Carpe Librum store tote-bags. A great year-round tote for books and other things, however, as this is October, we suggest that it would make an ideal trick-or-treat bag!

We hope that you'll visit all of our featured bookstores, but as an additional enticement, Missy sent us tourism postcards for West Feliciana Parish, where The Conundrum is located. Consider this charming town for your next vacation and make sure to visit The Conundrum Books and Puzzles!
