One Book, One Festival
Inaugurated in 2008, the Louisiana Book Festival's One Book, One Festival discussion group continues at the 2016 Louisiana Book Festival. Participants are invited to read the same book in advance and then join the scholar-led discussion with others at the festival.
To celebrate its 70th year, the One Book, One Festival selection for 2017 is Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire.
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.
