Magnet Author-Teacher Rises to Occasion -- (Feb. 23, 2002, LAFAYETTE)
Author Laraine Elizabeth Turner is pictured in the heart of the Swamplands--the Achafalaya Basin--displaying her action-thriller, "The Rise and Fall of the Witch on the Bayou," set here in Louisiana. Her exciting, new book is rising in popularity with both children and adults.
Her action-thriller is relevant to the current events of Hurricane Katrina, because it is about a Cajun girl who loses her home and family to a hurricane fire in the Louisiana bayous.
Author Laraine Elizabeth Turner just completed her successful "Bayou Book Tour" here in Louisiana, including TV morning-show appear- ances and booksignings in Lafayette, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans.
