The free festival is from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. in the downtown area of Baton Rouge. Among the authors on hand will be Tulane faculty members Richard Campanella, Nick Spitzer, Larry Powell, Peter Cooley and Paula Morris.
Authors and participants will present their latest releases, discuss them with their fans and sign autographs. There also will be more than 80 book-related organizations at the festival.
During the day, the festival takes over the State Library of Louisiana, the Louisiana State Capitol, the Louisiana State Museum and the nearby streets. Since it's a Louisiana festival, there will be plenty of great food and live music.
