Author Teaches the Techniques of Learning the Alphabet at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
Online PR News – 12-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Brenda Martin, author of The Alphabet Learned Quickly and Easily 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.
Brenda Martin has spent her career teaching students with various levels of learning. She pens The Alphabet Learned Quickly and Easily, a story that was derived from an event when Martin was trying to teach a kindergarten boy who seemed to have learning difficulties. The situation gave her an idea of incorporating each letter into a unique, colorful picture of an object that begins with the letter's sound. She then paired the picture with a funny short story. When she showed the boy, he had a breakthrough and the boy was no longer confused and frustrated. The author describes the teaching techniques that she honed over the years. She encourages all parents and teachers who are struggling to teach the alphabet to read this book for best results. This is also best for students who think that all letters look and sound the same, as well as those that are confused by the differences in their native language and English.
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 Martin and her piece, The Alphabet Learned Quickly and Easily. 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, Brenda Martin’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."
