Many authors dreamed about seeing their books in films. Whether turning a memoir into a biopic or a novel into a thriller movie, turning a literary masterpiece into cinematography requires connections and lots of book marketing. Attending the ALA LibLearnX with ReadersMagnet in New Orleans brings you nearer to decision-makers and possibly to agents in the film industry.

Hollywood South is one of the nicknames of Louisiana. It is where The Library Learning Experience (LLX) will be taking place from January 27 to 30 this year. The LLX or LibLearnX is a program organized by the American Library Association (ALA). With ALA as the organizer and New Orleans as the location, self-published authors joining ReadersMagnet at the event will have an edge of better opportunities for author branding and book marketing.

Louisiana and History

Officially, Louisiana is known as the Pelican State in reference to its state bird that appears on the state flag and seal. Sometimes, this Deep South state is called Sportsman’s Paradise because of the abundance of natural resources.

Due to the state’s tax incentives for film producers in 2002, film and television companies were attracted to make Louisiana a global player in movie and TV creation. As a result, the nickname “Hollywood South” or “Hollywood on the Bayou” was added to the many positive tags of the Pelican State.

Library and Learning

Learning is a constant experience. Consequently, educational institutions and libraries became the top sources of learning experiences. With that in mind, the American Library Association is the most trusted body of librarians, library administrators, researchers, educators, and all intellectuals gathering and preserving information.

Started as a virtual experience, the ALA LLX will at last conduct its first in-person event at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center (MCCNO) in New Orleans, Louisiana. LibLearnX is committed to providing hands-on workshops, bite-size sessions, and other formats designed to match preferred learning styles with an emphasis on experiential learning.

Books and Films

Libraries and library organizations, like the ALA, protect data information. Fact-checking books before turning them into a movie or TV series is a noble way of protecting the public from misinformation and disinformation. As an indie author, surrounding yourself with librarians and educators is a safe place and a good start to making your book reliable. This is especially important if you’re into historical and science fiction.

During the Book Confab in Tribeca, New York, ReadersMagnet was able to invite celebrities, such as Alex Hyde-White, Jordan Rhodes, and Bryn Leetch. You might be able to meet popular film and TV personalities at the ALA LLX in Hollywood South. Interestingly, in 2013, film and television production in Louisiana exceeded that of California for the first time.

Opting to join LibLearnX in New Orleans is the best way to start 2023 successfully. Knowing that ReadersMagnet was a finalist of the BBB Torch Awards for Ethics last year will make you confident that you’re in good hands.
