The annual New Orleans Bookfair, celebrating authors, publishers and books created in New Orleans and the south, is now in its 11th year. To celebrate, the Bookfair is coming together with the city’s beloved Alternative Media Expo on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
As a result, expect everything from indy films to indy books to comics and apps, all under one vast roof!
