"Celebrating Readers, Writers & Their Books"
The Louisiana Book Festival is back! Louisiana 's world-class celebration of Readers, Writers and their Books will return to Baton Rouge from 10 AM - 7:30 PM on Saturday, October 4, 2008. We want you to be part of it. The 6 th annual event will feature over 100 authors talking about their books; the Young Readers Pavilion, where children and parents will enjoy storytelling performances, face painting and other exciting activities; and a stimulating variety of book-related activities, demonstrations, exhibitions and performances. Food and music will complement the festive occasion. It all takes place at the Louisiana State Capitol, the State Library of Louisiana, the Louisiana State Museum, and in tents on neighboring streets. Book-loving volunteers are essential to the festival's success. Whether it's escorting one of the festival's authors, serving as room monitors in the Capitol, or working with children in the Young Readers Pavilion, your help is needed.
