“Each festival ignites a spirit of literacy and learning,” Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne said. I encourage every Louisianan to attend and get to know a few accomplished authors and enjoy Louisiana’s famous festival atmosphere.”
Last year nearly 16,500 visitors from throughout the nation and other countries attended the festival. The festival will again feature presentations by Louisiana and Southern writers as well as national bestselling authors, panel discussions, a Children’s Pavilion, live music and food vendors.
The festival counts on volunteers to help make the event a success. Whether it is escorting the festival’s authors, serving as room monitors in the Capitol during panel discussions or working with children in the Young Readers Pavilion, volunteers are essential.
