Theriot, author of American Energy, Imperiled Coast: Oil and Gas Development in Louisiana’s Wetlands (LSU Press, 2014), will participate in an informal Q&A session regarding the petroleum industry in Louisiana and its impact on the coastal wetlands at Hill Memorial Library at LSU on Monday, June 9 at 4:00 pm. Books will be available for sale. This free public program is held in association with the exhibition “I Remember: An Art Show of Environmental Significance” currently on display at Hill Memorial Library.

Following the session, Dr. Theriot will present a lecture at 5:15 pm in the Dalton J. Woods Auditorium, LSU Energy, Coast & Environment Building, sponsored by the LSU Center for Energy Studies.

The travelling exhibition “I Remember” was produced by the Coastal Wetlands Protection, Planning and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) Task Force, in conjunction with LSU Libraries T. Harry Williams Center for Oral History. While on display at Hill Memorial Library, the exhibition is supplemented with materials from the holdings of LSU Libraries Special Collections related to Louisiana’s wetlands.

CWPPRA is federal legislation enacted in 1990 that is designed to identify, prepare, and fund construction of coastal wetlands restoration projects. Since its inception, 151 coastal restoration or protection projects have been authorized, benefiting over 112,000 acres in Louisiana.
