Authors Book Fair

Main Street will be bustling Saturday, April 10th from 9:30 a.m. – 3 p.m., as published authors with something to say about the south share their books, music will fill the air, and food vendors will be on hand to sell the food for which the south is famous.  Come to shop, come to browse, come to eat, come to listen, come to dance, come to visit. There will be something for everyone as you wander through the award-winning Main Street along scenic Bayou Teche.

Day of Event Details for Authors

Here is some information that you will need for a successful show.

Maps with the table (author) locations will be available at Books Along the Teche, 106 East Main Street, starting Friday, April 9th, and Saturday, April 10th, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. Someone will be available to go over your location when you pick up your map. We hope to have volunteers available to lend a hand with your set up. Parking will be available at several sites in the area, and parking locations will be noted on the map.

Very Important: The sidewalks are wide, but please be sure that any tent or shade must not block people visiting the tables. Also, no table should block the entrance to a merchant store or business, as all should be open for business during the Authors Book Fair.

Electricity is not available along Main Street.

Authors must bring everything they need, including tables, tents or sun covers, signs, books, etc. and transport materials to and from their car. Event time is 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 10th. Authors are asked to complete set up before 9:30 a.m. and begin tear-down after 3 p.m.

Any questions, please call Howard at the store at 337-367-7621.

Thanks to all for participating and we hope you have a very successful book sale!
