Comment from a 2012 LBF attendee
We love this event. We've been to all except one year that we missed and one year when the event was canceled. Thanks to everyone who helped make 2012 a success.
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.
