The LEH will support the 2016 Louisiana Book Festival in Baton Rouge, through a Strategic Partnership grant to the State Library of Louisiana Foundation. Along with funds for speaker travel and honoraria, the LEH will produce a special edition of the festival program featuring stories from Louisiana Cultural Vistas magazine.
The LEH and PRIME TIME Family Reading Time exhibition booths will showcase LEH programs and offer prizes, and all are encouraged to come by and spin the prize wheel to win unique LEH prizes!
The festival takes place Saturday, Oct. 29 in Capitol Park. Featured authors include Erin Greenwald, Maurice Carlos Ruffin, Wendy Rodrigue, Tom Piazza, Darrell Bourque, and 2016 Louisiana Writer Award recipient Christina Vella.
