Author Reveals the Magic Marbles at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017

Online PR News – 11-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, David Worsdale, author of the children’s fiction book Pedro and the Magic Marbles 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.

David Worsdale lives in Weymouth, Dorset and works as a full time taxi driver. He is a published writer of many children’s poems that were released in various anthologies. Pedro and the Magic Marbles is his first full length children’s novel. The story centers a boy named Pedro who lives in the village of Marbleville, where his father works at the marble mines. One day, his grandparents pay him a visit and their arrival coincides with a magical marble happening. This event turns Pedro’s life as it leads him to discovering the letters that the mother of the present mine owner entrusted to his grandmother. Pedro discovers a secret that leads him back home!

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 Worsdale and his piece, Pedro and the Magic Marbles. 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, David Worsdale’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."
