Karni R. Perez will be present to sign copies of her recently published book, Fishing for Gold: The Story of Alabama's Catfish Industry, on Wednesday, March 22 at 4 p.m. in the Special Collections and Archives Department located on the Ground Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.
Perez, an independent researcher living in Auburn, compiled the material at the request of faculty in the Auburn University Department of Fisheries and Allied Aquacultures and catfish industry representatives, who wanted to record an oral history of the industry.
This project was funded by Southern Pride Processing Company, the Alabama Catfish Producers, and the AU Fisheries and Allied Aquacultures Department. The book signing is being co-sponsored by the Auburn University Libraries, the Alabama Center for the Book, and the AU College of Agriculture.
This event is open to the public. For more information, contact Katie Jackson at 844-5887 or email@example.com .
