New Orleans Poetry Festival (New Orleans, LA)

New Orleans Poetry Festival

Bloof Books will be tabling at the festival bookfair on Saturday and Sunday. We will be showcasing our full catalog of poetry paperbacks, handmade chapbooks, and other printed ephemera—including new releases by Nikki Wallschlaeger, Catie Rosemurgy, Ginger Ko, and broadsides printed exclusively for the NOLA festival. Several of our poets will also be on hand for events throughout the festival, including Elisabeth Workman, Danielle Pafunda, Ginger Ko, K. Lorraine Graham, Maureen Thorson, Shanna Compton, and others. We’ll probably be sewing chapbooks or making small prints while you browse, and we’re happy to give you a demo or read you a poem.

Reading details to come.
