Kudos to the Decatur Book Festival
According to Daren Wang, the executive director, the book festival will include more than 450 authors, 130 exhibitors and sponsors, and 80,000 booklovers. It is also very impressive that there will be more than 900 volunteers working this venue. The book festival is said to be the largest independent book festival in the United States.
Diane Quintana and I will be part of the Sycamore Family Zone (Organizing for Kids – booth 610) and will also have our 15 minutes of fame (1:45 – 2:00) on Saturday on the Sycamore Family Zone Stage.
When you enter the free festival you will want to pick up the AJC guide. In the guide you will find a map showing the location of the booths and the 18 stages. Each stage has a listing of presenters and the times they are on stage. The Decaturbookfestival.com site has a wealth of additional information.
Show up early so that you can join Bookzilla to kick off the fun each day with the Children’s Parade!
