In a recent press release, the 2022 New Orleans Book Festival at Tulane University states that it will host its inaugural weekend, March 10-12, with a three-day, in-person literary celebration featuring more than 100 national, regional and local authors, including some of the nation’s most beloved bestsellers. The festival is free and open to the public. A schedule of events will be released in early February.
The lineup of Best-Selling Authors includes Levees.org founder Sandy Rosenthal for her debut book, Words Whispered in Water; Why the Levees Broke in Hurricane Katrina (Mango, 2020).
The press release continues: The new, major literary event for the Crescent City, whose debut was postponed by the pandemic, will feature panel discussions, moderated conversations, keynote lectures, book fairs, family programming and workshops. Each day will include at least one major plenary session, which will feature a leading author. The event will also provide a forum for media outlets, authors and readers to network and collaborate in one of the world’s most vibrant and culturally diverse cities.
