With LSU's spring practice wrapped up, LSU head coach Les Miles can take some time to relax. He's apparently using the free time to catch up on a good book.
Miles tweeted out a pic of himself reading Kingfish: The Reign of Huey P. Long, Richard White's 2006 biography of the controversial Louisiana political boss. Long served Louisiana both as its governor and later as a US senator before his assassination in 1935. Among his accomplishments as governor was the transformation of LSU from a small Southern college into one of the top universities in America.
Now that spring practice is over, I can take time to #readEBR w/ @Forum35 & @ebrpl! Enjoying my copy of Kingfish. LM pic.twitter.com/6tFahhdNSU— Les Miles (@LSUCoachMiles) April 18, 2016
Kingfish is the focus of the East Baton Rouge Parish Library's "One Book, One Community" program. The program seeks to encourage literacy in the community by bringing it together through reading the same book together.
