The Louisiana Book Festival is back! Louisiana’s world-class celebration of readers, writers and their books is returning to downtown Baton Rouge from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29. Join in the fun and experience the Louisiana Book Festival from within by volunteering.
The eighth annual event is featuring more than 225 authors and panelists discussing their books; the Young Readers Pavilion, where children and parents will enjoy storytelling performances, face painting and other activities; and a wide variety of book-related activities, demonstrations, exhibitions and performances.
Volunteers are essential to the festival’s success. Whether it is escorting the festival’s authors, serving as room monitors in the Capitol during panel discussions and author workshops or working with children in the Young Readers Pavilion, your help is needed. If you are interested in volunteering and would like more information about the festival as well as volunteer opportunities, visit www.louisianabookfestival.org/Volunteers.html.
The Louisiana Book Festival is co-sponsored by the Louisiana Center for the Book; the State Library of Louisiana; the Department of Culture, Recreation & Tourism; Office of Lt. Governor and the Louisiana Library and Book Festival Foundation. Complete information on the 2011 Book Festival is available at www.LouisianaBookFestival.org or by calling 225.219.9503.
