The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Join The International Booklover’s Burlesque Festival. This event is a one-of-a-kind sensual literary weekend celebration of two uniquely different, open-themed Booklover’s Burlesque shows that highlight a mix of any and all genres of the written word matched with burlesque, boylesque, and draglesque artists chosen from around the country and the world. Each night will feature different world-renowned "Guest of Honor" performing artists and authors, professional actors/readers, and specially curated burlesque, boylesque, and draglesque acts chosen for the festival. And just as a library is an eclectic mix of books, this festival shall also celebrate an eclectic mix of all types of writing matched with all types of performers. These shows are sex/body/queer-positive, feminist, and inclusive to all.

Booklover’s Burlesque, produced by Lacy Knightly/Nick Lacy of Lacy Productions, is the world's sexiest literary salon, which matches titillating, inspiring, and/or empowering book readings with burlesque, boylesque, or draglesque performances. Professional readers, actors, or authors read aloud a piece of writing from any genre and are then followed by a burlesque, boylesque, or draglesque performance inspired by the piece in aesthetic, feel, emotion, character, plot, etc.

This event is 21 and over.
