Meet the Author: Sat. Oct. 30th from 8:30 to 11:30 at the main library, W. Joseph Dupuis will talk about his book, The Other Side of the Clouds, and sign copies.  Joe, now a resident of Virginia, was one of a family of seven children of Leroy and Alix Dupuis and was brought up just outside of Ville Platte.  He learned to fly and had a varied and exciting career, which he recounts in his book.  Everybody is welcome.
