Join the West Baton Rouge for "King Crawfish," a lunchtime lecture and film screening with Connie Castille of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Castille documents the Cajun spirit as it is poured out on a communal table even as the wild harvest is diminishing. The film traces the crustacean from the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival to its natural habitat, the Atchafalaya Basin, and finds fishermen fighting to retain their way of life in one small fishing community.
This event is free and participants are welcome to bring a bag lunch.
