The 2008 Decatur Book Festival is coming!!
THIS LABOR DAY WEEKEND!!
I've had the great pleasure of participating in the Decatur Book Festival since it's inception and this year is no exception (read about 2006 and 2007).
If you can make it to Decatur, Georgia this Saturday or Sunday, over 250 authors will be talking about their books, the creative process, sharing stories and illustrations in various venues around the square.
I will be speaking twice, featuring Paco and the Giant Chile Plant and I sure hope to see you:
Mingei World Arts (next to Java Monkey)
Saturday, 11:30 am
The Children's Main Stage
Sunday, 5:00 pm
I will also be manning the CBAIS - Children's Book Authors and Illustrators of the South booth right next to the Children's Stage much of the weekend. This is a brand new group of local, award-winning children's book creators. We hope to become a resource for teachers, media specialists and schools looking for speakers, as well as educate the public about the amazing talent we have right here in the South.
If you love books and learning about the people who create them, it's going to be a wild, busy and fun weekend - hope you'll stop by!!
