Books Along the Teche Literary Festival

Friday, April 5, 2019, 8:30 AM


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, bourré 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. For more information please call 888-942-3742. Please note that James Lee Burke will not attend this event as he will be out of state during the Festival. Sponsors
