Oxford American Feature: Have a Page-Turning Good Time in Louisiana
From the bayous and the backroads to the city streets and parade routes, Louisiana is a state full of stories. Generations of writers, musicians, and other artists have been inspired by the people and places that call Louisiana home.
But when it comes to the inspiration and stories inspired by and set along the one-and-only Bayou Teche, you’ll find unforgettable stories that are as engrained in the state’s identity as Mardi Gras itself. And the Books Along the Teche Literary Festival is the place to experience those stories and more in their natural setting of the American South.
Located in historic New Iberia, Louisiana, the Books Along the Teche Literary Festival is three days full of good stories, good food, and good times from sunup to sundown. It’s a celebration of Southern literature featuring Rebecca Wells, this year’s Great Southern Writer and author of Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. The festival also includes live storytelling, workshops, music, boat tours, and plenty of food to feed your soul.
