Louisiana Book Festival 2023

October 28

Louisiana’s excellent annual literary festival returns this year, bringing hundreds of authors, literary-minded organizations, and bibliophiles together again, at last. Sprawling over the grounds of the Louisiana State Capitol, the State Library of Louisiana, Capitol Park Museum, and Capitol Park Event Center; expect book talks, workshops, signings, an Author Party on Friday night at 7 pm, and plenty more literary loveliness.

This year, catch Country Roads editors Jordan LaHaye Fontenot and Alexandra Kennon, with contributors Ruth Laney and Sam Irwin—who will all be presenting a panel discussing Country Roads’ magazine’s 40 years spent exploring and chronicling Louisiana culture. Details to come.

9 am–4 pm. Free. Full event schedule at louisianabookfestival.org. Tickets to the Author Party at 7 pm on Friday are available at bontempstix.com.
