Something for everyone!
Whether your favorite books are crime thrillers, biographies, or anything else, we have something for everyone. Just about every type of literature you can imagine is represented at the Louisiana Book Festival, where you have the opportunity to discover new books and get to know their authors! Be sure to visit our panel discussions and author presentations to hear the “story behind the story”: learn about authors’ inspirations for their works, pick up writing tips, and meet other book lovers. From short stories to cookbooks to children’s books, you are sure to fall in love with new books and authors at the Louisiana Book Festival.
Book-loving volunteers are essential to the Louisiana Book Festival's success. Whether it's escorting authors, guiding visitors, selling refreshments, working with children in the Young Readers Pavilion or other fun and rewarding assignments, the Louisiana Book Festival wants you to join the volunteer team.
