Edwards BookRight now, the “Louisiana Buzz” is none other than Edwin Edwards.

Edwards, who served four terms as Louisiana Governor and then ten years in prison, is now making the book tour rounds and is indeed a “hot” item—since he is out of jail and is a free man.

 The author of Edwards’s biography “Edwin Edwards, Governor of Louisiana”, Leo Honeycutt is also on the road—both with and without Edwards. Honeycutt is signing books and discussing the personality, politics and the mystique of the man who dominated politics in Louisiana during the last half of the 20th century.

Last week, Bayoubuzz’s co-publisher Althea Sabludowsky interviewed Honeycutt . Below are two segments of the Bayoubuzz interview and the respective details and highlights:
