Author Shares Defining Atlas at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
Online PR News – 11-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017 Stone Michaels, author of the piece Defining Atlas 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.
Stone Michaels marks his debut in the literary limelight with Defining Atlas, a poetry book that captures the various characteristics of life. This colorful collection passes through the heart and soul of a person's darkest and brightest moments in his journey through life. The readers will be tantalized as this book projects a thriving vision and striving purpose that people are defining and redefining themselves while enduring like the great Greek Titan Atlas. This piece unlocks the author's belief that everyone should become a victim of God's success. And just like Atlas who carries the world on his back, every single person possesses strength, heartache, love, courage, and most importantly sincerity - these things play an intimate experience to a person's destiny. Michaels absorbs the combination of hard work and spiritual humility being with a family comprised of ministers, veterans, nurses, and educators. The book is a perfect source of encouragement for those who have despaired hearts!
The author, together with BookBlastPro will be present at the AJC Decatur Book Festival. The festival-goers and other authors will have the opportunity of getting first-hand information about Michaels and his piece, Defining Atlas. 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, Stone Michaels’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."
