Author Reveals a Murder Case at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
Online PR News – 12-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Winnfred Smith, author of Murder Finds A Home 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.
Winnfred Smith pens Murder Finds A Home, a compelling story that reveals the life of John Stone, a computer guy who has a knack for solving mysteries. The story commences when Stone's close friend Elliot asks him to come to California to help solve the murder of the manager of his homeless shelter. Stone finds himself getting the bits and pieces that do not seem to fit. He gets clues that keep hanging until another person comes in the picture to provide the answers. Stone gets a twist in his life when in the middle of solving a murder, he encounters women who are delicious, devious, or deadly. His discoveries move to higher levels and so does the danger - leading him to making life or death decisions. Will Stone find the answers?
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 Smith and his piece, Murder Finds A Home. 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, Winnfred Smith’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."
