Author Teaches a Lesson on Morality at the AJC Decatur Book Festival
Online PR News – 11-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Rev. Maxine Gray, author of the piece Children's Lesson on Morality: "Not My Problem"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.
Rev. Maxine Gray pens Children's Lesson on Morality: "Not My Problem", a piece that teaches life lesson to all young minds. The story commences when Piggy Zee, a carefree little piglet plays in the forest and finds herself in danger as Tubal the large eagle threatens to have her for dinner. Piggy Zee's friends aid her but not the selfish Peacock. This piece from Gray's creative imagination teaches compassion. It also denotes that one must not be selfish; and that love should be given to all for free, even when the kind of love that is shared is not the same as the kind that is given back. To all parents who want to teach their children a valuable lesson, Gray's children's book is a perfect read, with the colorful illustrations that work hand in hand with the story, there's no doubt everything will be understood by the younger generation.
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 Gray and her piece, Children's Lesson on Morality: "Not My Problem". 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, Rev. Maxine Gray'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."
