Decatur Book Festival

by kpmautner

Something else to do this Labor Day weekend if you’re in Atlanta or within a reasonable distance of our city.  The Decatur Book Festival (in, I believe, its 15th year) is one of the biggest of its kind in the country.  Joyce Carol Oates is the keynote guest of honor, and there are dozens of local and national authors who do readings, sign autographs, do panel presentations, and, in general, answer questions from people who are actually capable of picking up a BOOK!

My one regret is that this festival conflicts every year with my previous commitment to DragonCon.

If you have no interest in science fiction or fantasy, or if you are poor of purse (the DragonCon tickets are not cheap), get on the MARTA and head on over to Decatur for several days of literary enjoyment.
