2021 Louisiana Book Festival *SAVE The DATE* Saturday, October 30, 2021



2021 Louisiana Book Festival is going Virtual.  More information coming soon!

Given that Louisiana is experiencing the highest daily hospitalizations due to COVID resurgence since the beginning of the pandemic, the live and in-person Louisiana Book Festival will not be held.

The health and safety of our festivalgoers, authors and other presenters, volunteers, exhibitors, and staff are of utmost priority in making this difficult but necessary decision. It is anticipated that a limited number of virtual programs originally planned for the live festival will be made available and announced through the festival and State Library of Louisiana websites and social media.

More information is forthcoming... Save the Date & Stay Tuned!

The Louisiana Center for the Book in the State Library of Louisiana is proud to present the 17th edition of this free, world-class literary celebration. More information will be posted on this site later this summer.

The Louisiana Book Festival is your chance to meet exceptional writers while enjoying book-related activities and presentations.

* Many events in Baton Rouge have been proactively postponed or cancelled due to COVID-19. For the most up-to-date event information, please check with the specific event's website or social media pages.
