Adult Literacy Advocates of Greater Baton Rouge, along with the LSU Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi, proudly present a celebration of the work of authors Gary L. Stewart and Susan Mustafa on Thursday, March 19th, 6 p.m. at the Dalton Woods Auditorium - LSU School of the Coast and Environment.
Gary L. Stewart earned his Bachelor of Science degree from LSU, and is Vice President of Delta Tech Service of Louisiana. Ten years ago, Gary began writing a journal, chronicling every detail of his search for his father and his own identity, and the heartbreaking discoveries he makes along the way. That journal served as the basis for The Most Dangerous Animal of All (A compelling New York Times Bestseller). Gary resides in Louisiana with his wife, Kristy, and son, Zach.
Susan Mustafa is an award-winning author and journalist. In addition to Susan’s latest release, The Most Dangerous Animal of All, she is also the co-author of Dismembered, written with Sue Israel, which chronicles the story of serial killer Sean Vincent Gillis, a Louisiana killer who confessed to the brutal murders and mutilations of eight women; and Blood Bath, about the life and crimes of serial killer Derrick Todd Lee, linked by DNA to the murders of seven Louisiana women. Blood Bath was written with Special Prosecutor Tony Clayton and Sue Israel. Susan lives in Louisiana with her husband, Scott.
