After a three-year, pandemic-induced hiatus, 64 Parishes’ publication parties returned with a celebration of the fall archaeology issue at the Biedenharn Museum and Gardens in Monroe. Co-hosted by the Biedenharn and Northeast Louisiana Arts Council with complimentary brews from Flying Tiger Brewery, the event brought together readers, contributors, and partners for mixing, mingling, and a conversation on Poverty Point with archaeologist Diana Greenlee, poet Jennifer Reeser, and photographer Jenny Ellerbe.
