Author Jerry Antil was touched by receiving a letter of congratulations from New Orleans' mayor, Mitch Landrieu, for his new book One More Last Dance - a Southern Louisiana story. Because of this genuine hospitality and his new love of Louisiana after researching it for his novel - Antil is making a copy of the novel or a copy of any other of his books a gift to every Public Library in Louisiana.

"Southern Louisiana will have their hands full with the flooding. I'm gifting them my new book about the warmth and friendships they are famous for." Jerry Antil

ONE MORE LAST DANCE protagonist, Gabriel Jordan - an aging, retired, black, army captain - was given three months to live two months before he meets the Southern Louisiana hospice lawn-man, Peck Finch. Gabe shares his final wish with Peck - to see a Newport Jazz Festival - to sit on a lawn, eat cheese and sausages and drink scotch listening to jazz one last time. Peck obliges the old man and off they go with $28 in their pockets. First stop, three hours south of where they started - New Orleans - only because they got lost on day one of their hitchhiking journey.

Kirkus Reviews say - "A delightfully quirky tale both unpredictable and affecting." A 'recommended read' they say referring to Peck as a "Cajun French Forrest Gump".

WISHING SHELF REVIEWS UK say - "A powerful character led legal saga...a John Grisham-style legal thriller."

"With all Louisiana has been through - and now with Hurricane Nate threatening," says Antil, "I want to do what I can to help. I'm a writer - I want to give the Louisiana people my books in the wake of the tragedies they have been through this year alone."

Antil's books include award winning: The Pompey Hollow Book Club series - four novels about growing up in the wake of WWII. They include his memoir THE LONG STEM IS IN THE LOBBY - and his best selling HANDBOOK FOR WEEKEND DADS.
