Treasures of LSU - $25.00

Many of LSU's greatest treasures are off the beaten path, their meaning obscured over time.

A number can be found on display in gallery exhibits. While others buried deep within restricted archives rarely see the light of day.

A few are even hidden in plain sight. But they all have stories to tell about their times, their origins and their value - intrinsic, scholarly or artistic.

Based on the book "Treasures of LSU," edited by Dr. Laura F. Lindsay and published by LSU Press, this high definition, LPB production takes you on an exclusive expedition filled with remarkable treasures, sharp turns and even a few twists.

Join us on the hunt for the Treasures of LSU.
