11 months and counting…
I wanted my teens, in my town in north Louisiana, to have that experience. Driving 8 hours or more? Not possible. And why should they? We have big towns like Shreveport and Monroe both with airports and nice convention centers. I made up my mind that no matter what, I was going to make this happen.
And so the concept of a book festival was born. Right now, we plan to make our debut on April 6, 2013 in the amazing town of Shreveport, Louisiana. My co-chair, LeVette Fuller, is the Young Adult Coordinator of the Shreve Memorial Library system and along the way, we’ve picked up an amazing graphic artist, Angie, and a publicity char, Karen (from the TLT blog fame).
