Join us at the AJC Decatur Book Festival, the largest independent book festival in the country, throughout Labor Day Weekend. The AJC Decatur Book Festival begins with the keynote panel discussion Friday evening featuring Richard Blanco, Rigoberto González, and Gabriela Ventura Baeza, moderated by Mariela Romero. The panel will discuss Latinx writing and the topic of immigration. Throughout the weekend-long book festival, authors will discuss their books at venues across downtown Decatur.
Be sure to catch the authors on the Humanities Track: Jim Auchmutey, Smokelore: A Short History of Barbecue in America; Wayne Clough, Things New and Strange: A Southerner’s Journey through the Smithsonian Collections; Jessica Handler, The Magnetic Girl; and Gary Hauk, Emory as Place: Meaning in a University Landscape.
