The AJC Decatur Book Festival
More than 600 authors will speak or appear on panels at this year’sAJC Decatur Book Festival and plenty of new elements have been added to the mix, including an outdoor kitchen for cooking demonstrations and a Global Voices “track” that salts the conversation with tales from Iran, India and Mexico.
“Every year we’ve seen growth,” said program director Philip Rafshoon. “Every year we’ve seen new additions come to the festival, new ideas, new activities.”
Along with books and authors, you can find art, music, food, dance, theater and all sorts of entertainments. But let us focus on literary delights. Read on for a few highlights.
