Myra Edgar Brown will be signing copies of the September/October issue of Louisiana Cookin magazine, which features her Creole Gumbo recipe, on Saturday, Aug. 29, at the Quality Inn Hotel, 3900 U.S. 51, Laplace.

Brown will be dishing up servings of her gumbo, starting at 11 a.m. The event also is a fundraiser for Brown, who said she needs heart surgery, to help defray medical costs.

Tickets are $25, which includes the magazine, along with gumbo, potato salad, dessert and a drink.
