Mission Statement

The Louisiana Book Festival is an annual, free celebration of readers, writer and their books held every fall in the heart of downtown Baton Rouge in the Louisiana State Capitol, State Library of Louisiana, Capitol Park Museum, and tents on neighboring streets. The festival includes the Young Readers Pavilion, where children and parents can enjoy storytelling, book-related crafts, and performances; Teen HQ, featuring bestselling and award-winning young adult authors and activities; live musical performances; cooking demos; scores of author and panel book talks and signings; and a wide variety of book-related activities and exhibitors.


The Louisiana Center for the Book in the State Library of Louisiana is proud to present the 20th edition of our free, world-class literary celebration. Come join the fun on Saturday, November 2, 2024, in downtown Baton Rouge at the State Library of Louisiana, the State Capitol, the Capitol Park Museum, and nearby locations.

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.

Volunteers for the festival are being sought from all over the state, especially from Baton Rouge and surrounding areas, including employees of local businesses; librarians from public, academic, school and special libraries; high school, undergraduate and graduate students; Louisiana writers; and book lovers in general!
