Ritz Publication Announces Upcoming New Release - Jim Gardner and Shreveport (Volume One) (1924-1959)

Ritz Publications is proud to announce that former Mayor James C. Gardner's book of memoirs titled Jim Gardner and Shreveport is ready to be reserved.

In this first volume of memoirs, Jim Gardner gives a remarkably candid view of himself growing up in downtown Shreveport, going to LSU, serving in the World War II Army and entering the political life of Shreveport and Louisiana at age 22. He reveals inside stories from his service as a young state legislator and shares his victories and defeats as Mayor of Shreveport. Along the way he recalls his encounters with Louisiana political giants. He gives the reader an amazingly honest view of himself and the world he lived in.

This beautiful 465 page, hardbound book is full of Shreveport and Louisiana history. This historical labor of love will be a treasure to friends and family members as Mayor Gardner embraces the Shreveport that he has loved so well.
