Centenary student to hold book reading/signing at Meadows Museum of Art
SHREVEPORT, LA — Centenary College senior Teri Johnson, a native of Eunice, Louisiana, will sign copies of her new book, The One, and deliver a brief author talk at the College’s Meadows Museum of Art on Wednesday, December 1, at 6:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Light refreshments will be served following the author talk. Masks will be required for all Museum visitors at this event, regardless of vaccination status. Please see themeadowsmuseum.com for the full COVID-19 visitor policy.
Johnson is majoring in communication with a focus on new media design and also works full-time as the director of social media and marketing for the Shreveport Mudbugs of the North American Hockey League. She maintains a 4.0 GPA, is a past winner of a Gold Addy Award from the American Advertising Federation of Shreveport-Bossier, and has published two previous books of essays and stories.
“Writing and publishing books obviously takes a lot of time, but since my books are pulled directly from my journal, I’m not sitting down at a table writing for hours and struggling with writer’s block,” explained Johnson. “It’s just me turning to my journal at the times when I need it the most and writing about the things I’m going through. Putting the book together and choosing what to put on the pages takes a bit of time (like you would expect), but being a student takes a lot of time too, so it’s really just about making time where I can for something that I’m passionate about. I’m a firm believer that we should never let things like work or school stop us from pursuing our passion projects.”
Passport Points are available for Centenary students who attend the event. More information is available in the Teri Johnson Author Talk and Book Signing Facebook event.
