“Decaturites” sense the excitement in the air, and have reportedly heard the stomping of Bookzilla echo ominously around the square. The AJC Decatur Book Festival is finally upon us.
As the host of the Author Hospitality Suite, Lenz anticipates welcoming authors from around the nation and world to the Festival. In our six years of marketing the Festival Lenz has witnessed Decatur become a literary destination of the Southeast with the Festival’s exponential growth.
This year the Festival once again will be bringing over 300 authors to our hometown. Festival-goers are looking forward to a bevy of events unique to this year including an adaptation of the Brer Rabbit Tales for the Atlanta Opera, a commemorative 9/11 storytelling event, and a ruthless, game-show-style match between competing writers.
Lenz is proud to present the Business and Marketing track this year. The Business and Marketing track features best-selling authors Greg Lindsay, Danny Kofke, Jim Beach, David Beasley, Chris Hanks, and Barbara Giamanco to discuss topics ranging from growing your small business to leadership strategy.
Our PR team has been busy this summer garnering media hit after media hit. Check out the interview Program Director Terra Elan McVoy did for this Sunday’s AJC, and an interview in Publisher’s Weekly with executive director Daren Wang. Even Bookzilla was interviewed.
Join us this weekend to understand firsthand what it means to have a massive celebration of the written word in all its forms and flavors. Understand that the Book Festival is more than a capstone to the summer season – it’s a Decatur institution.
