The Louisiana Book Festival is this coming Saturday, October 31st, on the grounds of the state capitol in Baton Rouge. One of the highlights of the literary year here in the Pelican State, the festival features scores of panels, discussions, readings, vendors, and exhibitors all throughout the day, and best of all, is free. More information about the Festival is available on their website, including a complete schedule of events.
As one of the visitors to the festival from overseas, the novelist and journalist Nick Holdstock will be visiting New Orleans to give a reading this coming Wednesday at 6pm at Maple Street Book Shop. I’m honored to introduce my good friend (and occasional collaborator), who is currently on tour for his new novel, The Casualties. More information is available through Maple Street itself.
