BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Lovers of books and the magic of reading packed Capitol Park in Baton Rouge Saturday.
It's all part of the tenth annual Louisiana Book Festival.
Local and national authors were on hand to sign there works.
Kids got to make their own paper and do crafts.
People got to learn Louisiana stories, and talk discuss what to read next!
Event goer Laura Savage says the fest helps people share their loves of books and reconnect as a community.
"I think it's critical for the survival of the community. We're in our own lives every day we forget that there is other people that liver here too. Things like this are just a great way for the community to get back together and interact with each other," Savage said.
The event also featured workshops for writers.
