What’s better than a relaxing yoga session surrounded by art?

2. Brains behind the bones: Meet the creators of ‘Claire Carter, Bone Detective’
Forensic anthropology meets Louisiana culture meets children’s books. Locals Mary Manhein and Leah Wood Jewett have joined forces to bring a new concept to the kids’ literature market. Drawing inspiration from her own background in science, Manhein writes the tales, while Jewett, exhibitions coordinator at the LSU Libraries, brings the words to life through illustration. We sat down with the pair to learn more about their publishing company, Os Liber Press, LLC, the future of the Claire Carter series, as well as what it’s like to work together.
