Jane Wolfe and Beau Boudreaux, authors and members of the SoPA Dean’s Advisory Council, recently released new books. Both were scheduled to speak at the inaugural New Orleans Book Festival at Tulane, which was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Co-authored with her husband Scott, Wolfe’s book, “From GED to Harvard Then Inc. 500: How Two Teens Went From GEDs to Building the Fastest Growing Business in New Orleans”, was published earlier this year by ForbesBooks. The book chronicles their journey from running a small, neighborhood market to owning a sprawling collection of stores suddenly shuttered by Hurricane Katrina, and their vision and creativity in re-inventing their businesses in the hurricane’s aftermath. Read more about the Wolfes, who also operate the iconic neighborhood restaurant Melba’s, via the ForbesBooks website.
Beau Boudreaux’s third book of poetry, “Toy Park” was published in late 2019 by Cherry Grove Collections. In addition to his writing, Boudreaux is an adjunct instructor of English with the school. This spring, he received the John Percy Dyer Award, SoPA’s highest teaching award, for his dedication and excellence in teaching.
