Join us for an in-person SIGNING event with authors CARL A. BRASSEAUX and DONALD W. DAVIS for their new book ASIAN-CAJUN FUSION: SHRIMP FROM THE BAY TO THE BAYOU.
A lushly illustrated and complete history of Louisiana's shrimping industry.
Shrimp is easily America’s favorite seafood, but its very popularity is the wellspring of problems that threaten the shrimp industry’s existence. Asian-Cajun Fusion: Shrimp from the Bay to the Bayou provides insightful analysis of this paradox and a detailed, thorough history of the industry in Louisiana.

BRASSEAUX, Lafayette, Louisiana, former director of the Center for Louisiana Studies and a Louisiana Writer of the Year, has spent a lifetime studying the peoples and cultures of the Louisiana coastal plain. He is author or coauthor of more than forty books including Ain't There No More: Louisiana's Disappearing Coastal Plain; Acadian to Cajun: Transformation of a People, 1803-1877; and Creoles of Color in the Bayou Country, all published by University Press of Mississippi.
DONALD W. DAVIS, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, has been involved in coastal-related research for more than forty years on the wide array of renewable and nonrenewable resources vital to the use of the wetlands. His work has appeared in numerous journals including Annals of the American Association of Geographers, Shore & Beach, Journal of Soil and Water Conservation, Louisiana Conservationists, and Louisiana History.
