The Fourth Annual Atlanta Journal-Constitution Decatur Book Festival Presented By DeKalb Medical (DBF) will be held on Labor Day Weekend (September 4-6) 2009, DBF Executive Director Daren Wang recently announced.
“We’re very excited about this year’s event,” Wang said. “With the continued support of the AJC, DeKalb Medical, the Georgia Center for the Book, and other sponsors, DBF 2009 is sure to be the can’t-miss community event of the summer.”
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Decatur Book Festival Presented by DeKalb Medical is an annual, free book festival held in Decatur, Georgia at venues located in and around the downtown square. Conceived in 2005 and launched in 2006, the festival brings more than 250 authors to Decatur for the holiday weekend. The authors — who include Pulitzer Prize winning and best-selling fiction and nonfiction writers — give readings and participate in panel discussions.
The 2008 event drew over 75,000 people to Decatur for three days of literature, music, food, and fun.
