Author Shares a Minor-League’s Major-League Life at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017

Online PR News – 10-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Don Miers, author of the book Minor-League Buzz: Major-League Life will be joining this year's AJC Decatur Book Festival, a community-based, non-profit event and largest independent festival in the country. Being renowned as one of the five largest festivals in the country, DBF continues to gather world-class authors as well as hundreds of thousands of festival-goers to enjoy book signings, author readings, panel discussions, an interactive children's area, live music, parade, cooking demonstrations, poetry slams, writing workshops, and others. These activities will be happening in and around the historic downtown Decatur square.

"We always knew Atlanta had a thriving writing and book community, but it needed a centerpiece to bring all the parts together", Tom Bell points out as he recalls the history of DBF. It was when Daren Wang hatched a hare-brained idea to establish a festival celebrating the spoken/written word that brought the other dreamers and believers together. Tom Bell — founding program director, Linda Harris, Richard Lenz, Alice Murray, Bill Starr and Judy Turner then began brewing the magic.

The DBF got rave reviews shortly after 18 months of hard work and dedication in volunteering full-time, until its commencement over Labor Day weekend back in 2006, which was attended by over 100 authors and 50, 000 people. The success of the event was contributed by the combination of supportive local businesses and restaurants, eager and able volunteers, and the ability to walk easily from venue to venue.

Don Miers earned a degree in hotel and restaurant management and has worked in the hospitality industry, as a pro sports executive, actor, comedian, community activist, motivational speaker, and political candidate. He and his wife, Patty, have four sons and six grandchildren, and live in Kissimmee, Florida, where Don is a sports and event facilities director. Given the success that he had earned, he wrote Minor-League Buzz: Major-League Life, an entertaining piece that talks about the life of Buzz Meyers and all the fun that he had experienced. Growing up in the 1960’s, Meyers had always been exposed to the kind of life that people in that era lived: baseball, sex, rock ‘n’ roll and baseball. He toils at different jobs and then gets his chance to becoming the sales and concessions manager for the Hampton Roads Monitors, a minor team near Virginia Beach. This puts him in long hours and now he gets the chance to party and meet baseball legends, upcoming stars, and cast of unforgettable characters. Meyers’s familiarity with the business gives him a realization that he has been enjoying too much and that it is time to give back to the community. This unique story will entertain readers while giving an important information about baseball. This piece is a must read for all baseball fans and non-baseball fans alike!

BookBlastPro will represent the author at the AJC Decatur Book Festival. The festival-goers and other authors will have the opportunity of getting first-hand information about Miers and his piece, Minor-League Buzz: Major-League Life. They will also get bookmarks and an opportunity of photo documentation which will be released after the event. The book selling will be announced at the event.

AJC Decatur Book Festival — Bookzilla Don Miers’s book and the rest of the fun activities will make this event a literary powerhouse that will delight the attendees and will make this annual event a huge success, as what Tom Bell expressed: "That's what the festival does best."
