New Orleans Bookfair 2012
The New Orleans Bookfair and Media Expo 2012 will be located in a new venue this year. Instead of being primarily a street fair, the event is more structured and will be held indoors at 725 Magazine Street in the Warehouse District, on Saturday November 17th, 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. The beautiful poster for this year is by artist Harriet Burbeck. Enjoy the day!
