LSU Press is one of those names you get to know when you either go to school at LSU (and live next door to the LSU Press Building during your tenure as a sorority member) or you live in the state of Louisiana. They print all kinds of books — from art to history books — and they still thriving despite cuts.
I spent a morning at an LSU Press and Southern Review launch meeting, photographing everyone and listening to what they had to say about their upcoming publications. As someone who has always loved books, it was encouraging and exciting to see so many people passionately speaking about them. And it was then encouraging to hear that LSU Press is becoming more and more self-supporting as budget cuts are threatening so many industries.
