The New Orleans Book Festival at Tulane University brings the world’s leading authors to the university's uptown campus for a multi-day celebration for book lovers of all ages. The festival features engaging conversations, readings and demonstrations that provide an opportunity for authors and readers to interact with each other in one of the most vibrant and culturally diverse cities in the world.

The fourth annual festival will be held March 27-29, 2025. Events will commence with a kickoff keynote and welcome reception on Thursday and conclude with a New Orleans-style celebration on Saturday evening.

The lineup of authors for the 2025 festival will be released later in 2024 and the full schedule of sessions is typically announced in the weeks before the festival. Major additions and changes to the schedule after the initial announcement will be logged on this page.
