Welcome to the Hot NOLA Summer Author Event!

Our goal is to put readers and authors together in a fun setting. Think of it as a scholastic book fair that has alcohol, and a large variety of books for you to purchase. Sounds great, right? I think so, but I’m biased. 

Our event will be one day and one day only from noon to 6 pm on July 30th. VIP ticket holders will be able to get in at noon, and general admission will have entry at 1 pm until we close up shop. This is a multi-genre event that means we have authors that write romance books and we have vendors that are children’s book illustrators. We will also have some vendors on site that will have goodies to sell and consume, and we will even have a psychic that will be doing readings!

You are going to want to join us for this event!

In Louisiana, there are no restrictions or mandates for mask usage or vaccination proof. But they are in place in New Orleans, so keep that in mind if you visit New Orleans or book a hotel in the city. New Orleans requires proof of vaccination or a negative PCR (72 hours) test to enter an establishment that serves food or alcohol. Our event will be held in a city right outside of New Orleans with no COVID mandates. We are following CDC guidelines and recommend mask usage and we will be practicing social distancing. We ask that if you feel ill, are running a fever, or show other symptoms please do not attend our event. Thank you.
