"New Iberia, What Can’t Be Lost:
Stories and Recollections from Iberia Parish, Louisiana

Decades before there was even a spark of an idea for a book, Dianne Landry made sixty video interviews of residents of Iberia Parish. She recognized the importance of recording and preserving the local history with no thought at the time as to how these videos would be used. In 2007 and again in 2009, the Iberia Cultural Resources Association hosted events where local residents entertained the audience with their recollections of people and places in Iberia Parish. In order to preserve these oral histories and vignettes of the past, the Iberia Cultural Resources Association has compiled this volume of real stories about simple pleasures, harsh realities, and strong family ties throughout the parish including Avery Island, Coteau, Delcambre, Patoutville, Jefferson Island, Lydia, Weeks Island, Jeanerette, Loreauville, and New Iberia.
