Comment from a 2017 LBF attendee
This was a truly wonderful literary experience.
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.
