Reading with Jackie Simien

Bonjour Tee Belle

Anchor/author tirelessly promotes literacy

Lake Charles, La., native and longtime Southeast Texas news anchor Jackie Simien released her first children’s book, “Bonjour, Tee Belle,” in October, which is Creole Heritage Month. The book is a tribute to the culture and Simien’s mother, Annabelle Simien Amos, a Mallet, La., native.
“Bonjour, Tee Belle” is the first in what the author hopes to be a series of Creole children’s books featuring her mother as the heroine of the stories.
