HOT OFF THE PRESS

Recent regional author offerings:

- "The Last Suppers" by Mandy Mikulencak. Published by: A John Scognamiglio Book. Summary: Many children have grown up in the shadow of Louisiana's Greenmount State Penitentiary. Most of them - sons and daughters of corrections officers and staff - left the place as soon as they could. Yet Ginny Polk chose to come back to work as a prison cook. Ginny has taken on a special responsibility: preparing their last meals.
