Biography gives fresh insight into artist Clementine Hunter

A new biography of the late folk artist Clementine Hunter offers a fuller portrait of her life, from domestic servant at Melrose Plantation in Natchitoches Parish to artistic fame as a widely-collected painter and muralist. Coauthor Tom Whitehead says he draws from the many visits he had with Hunter that went on for nearly two decades. Whitehead will sign copies of "Clementine Hunter: Her Life and Art" at Barnes and Noble, Sept. 15, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
