Books Along the Teche Literary Festival: Celebrating New Iberia, Dave Robicheaux's Hometown and Great Southern Writers

Plan your trip for the 2019 Books Along the Teche Literary Festival!

Save the dates of April 5, 6 and 7, 2019!

Thank you to those who joined us for the 2018  festival, and for those who did not, do not miss this wonderful event next year.  The official Books Along the Teche Literary Festival: Celebrating New Iberia, Dave Robicheaux’s Hometown and Great Southern Writers, will be held April 5 – 7, 2019 predominately in New Iberia’s historic district, but will also include events around Iberia Parish.

Various venues will celebrate literature and its impact on the area’s culture with storytelling, workshops, readers theatre, music, bourée lessons and tournament, bus and boat tours, a 5K run and food, food, food.

Anyone who is familiar with James Lee Burke and his fictional character, detective Dave Robicheaux, knows of New Iberia and our fascinating blend of heritage, hospitality and history. Burke spent his summers in New Iberia with relatives, playing and fishing in the many water holes that populate the area. His family’s hometown is clearly very dear to him, as evidenced by the prominent part that his fictionalized version of New Iberia plays in each of his novels.

The Festival celebrates the literary talent that our area has to offer by highlighting a different Great Southern Writer. The author will change each year but the event will feature an accomplished author that calls the south home or explores a unique aspect of our culture. Please check back to the web site to find out who will be the featured Great Southern Writer for 2019.  The symposium will feature an author reading, a discussion, and a question and answer session. Join us as we explore the wonder of an area rich in history, culture, and lore.
