TIPP CITY, Ohio, Jan. 10, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- On Sunday, January 12, 2014 acclaimed author Howard Feinstein, along with his publisher Foxhead Books. release the author's emotionally charged memoir entitled: "Fire on the Bayou: True Tales from the Civil Rights Battlefront" (ISBN: 978-1-940876-00-9). The book details Mr. Feinstein's civil rights work prosecuting Ku Klux Klan cases and other prosecutions involving racially-motivated violence.
In "Fire on the Bayou," a federal hate crimes prosecutor takes the reader inside the grand juries, courtrooms, and killing fields of the Deep South, where, as native son William Faulkner put it, "The past is never dead. It's not even past."
"Fire on the Bayou" is an emotionally-candid, self-effacing and plain-spoken account in which Howard Feinstein tells true tales that harken from a time many would rather forget. Secrets once thought buried forever resurface in this engaging memoir of a young attorney thrust "behind the lines" into a cauldron of hate and violence.
Feinstein's book launch event on the 12th is sponsored by Empowered Women International, an organization who in the author's words is "a wonderful nonprofit which continues the struggle for dignity and equality."
Following Sunday's book launch, Feinstein has scheduled an extensive east coast book tour with stops in New York, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Fans of Feinstein will find these promotional events, "classic Howard" as they embody an eclectic mix of literature, music and poignant conversation.
Copies of "Fire on the Bayou: True Tales from the Civil Rights Battlefront" can be found at online retailers as well as direct from Foxhead Books ( http://foxheadbooks.com/ ).
