Today and More...

Copper Iris Books, based in Lafayette, Louisiana, 

is the collective spirit of two friends 

        who share a passion for literature, literacy and life.


Nancy Rust and Carol Stubbs are co-authors of A Louisiana Christmas: Heritage Recipes and Hometown Celebrations, a book about the holiday foods and events that uniquely combine the allure of Louisiana with the spirit of Christmas. Their second book, What’s Watching Me? and Other Animal Stories, was inspired by their love of animals and a deep desire to share their joy of reading with middle grade readers. Carol and Nancy are both former teachers who now teach a writing class through VITA (Volunteer Instructors Teaching Adults). They are members of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Acadiana Writers/Illustrators Critique Group, Writers’ Guild of Acadiana, Heritage Rose Foundation, and Friends of the Library.
