Local authors Tom Aswell (Louisiana Rocks) and Del Hahn will be here to discuss each of their new releases, Bobby Jindal: His Destiny and Obsession and Smuggler's End: The Life and Death of Barry Seal! Join us for what is sure to be an interesting discussion of politics, crime, life, and exploitation in Louisiana!
Born Piyush Jindal in Baton Rouge and nicknamed "Bobby" at a young age, Bobby Jindal's ambition has always been apparent. From his precocious entry into the world of government at the age of twenty-four to his election as the first Indian-American governor in the United States, Jindal is consistent in his upward push. But what sparked his passion for politics? What influences his doctrines?
Adler Berriman "Barry" Seal had a brief, but spectacular, career as a cocaine smuggler-turned DEA informant. At the height of his career, he was under investigation by the DEA in Mena, Arkansas, and New Orleans, Louisiana, in addition to being under the watchful eye of the FBI.
