Festival for Book Lovers

Spent a fun weekend at the Decatur Book Festival; the largest independent book festival in the country.  It is an annual event held during Labor Day Weekend in the historic downtown Decatur square.  My husband and I were fortunate enough to be invited to participate in the emerging writers pavilion where we were allowed speaking time on stage to discuss our recently published book about our 2013 cross-country road trip.  It was an amazing weekend filled with great music, delicious food, and opportunities to meet world-class authors, publishers, and booksellers.  We enjoyed the camaraderie with other emerging writers.  Attendees had an opportunity to learn about our book as well as attend the author signing and sales event. This 10th annual festival gave the city of Decatur an opportunity to be a phenomenal host with a very large platform where its population of over 20,000 residents could be proud, especially being an intown suburb of Atlanta and part of the Atlanta metropolitan area.  Definitely a party with a purpose!
