Get a Date This Saturday at the New Orleans Book Fair!

Event: Aug 03, 2011


The tenth annual New Orleans Book Fair takes places this Saturday, Nov. 5, on Frenchmen Street from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. There will be craploads of tables of books and other bound printed matter lining the sidewalks, and tons of (really attractive!) literary people browsing through them. Go act like you’re checking out the second volume of Constance while actually peering over the top, making eyes at some bespectacled bookish type with frazzled hair and high cheekbones and a hardback poking out his/her tote bag. It’s where all the hot literati will be. Plus there will be some readings and other book fair stuff like that. But really, go for the hot book lovers—operative word lovers.
