If you love to read, you’ll want to attend the book signing for a promising, upcoming Sabine Parish author on Oct. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Shawn Beasley will be signing copies of her first novel Killing the Rougarou at the reception at the Many Depot Art Guild located in the historic old Many Depot.
Beasley, a native of Sabine Parish and a resident of the Oak Hill community, has written a compelling novel about a Louisiana legend, the Rougarou.
The Rougarou, in case you didn’t know it, is the legendary swamp monster or evil werewolf of Cajun Louisiana folklore.
It throws its head back, letting out a blood-curdling howl to the moon. That’s no werewolf, though. That’s what we in Louisiana call the Rougarou, cher. It’s an evil monster and it’s huge!
According to Cajun legend, deep in the Louisiana Swamp is the Rougarou — a large, werewolf-like half-man, half-beast creature who preys on and eats people who venture too far into its terrain.
Beasley’s novel is titled Killing the Rougarou. it’s the first in a series about the Louisiana Rougarou that she is writing.
Beasley, who is divorced, lives with her oldest son Coty and her grandson Payton. She is employed as a writer. Blue Naked Rougarou LLC is her brand.
All of Beasley’s grandchildren attend school in Sabine Parish.
