Author Brings the Brotherhood at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
Online PR News – 12-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Lawrence Deering, author of the piece The Brotherhood 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.
Lawrence Deering lives in Winter Park, Florida and St. Croix, Virgin Islands. He spent over thirty years being a healthcare executive; raised a Southern Baptist who often writes about the impact of organized religion on people's lives; and a lover of music. He ventured the literary field and there came The Brotherhood, a story that centers Aaron Davis and his amazing gifts. The story commences when Aaron Davis joins his father's ministry and heals a woman of cancer. This event marks a turning point in his life and he creates an organization with his sister Esther, called the Brotherhood of Man that unites major religions of the world. Davis uses his powers to maintain the peace and when Jack Holder becomes President Aaron's organization gets threatened of being eliminated for his Masonic organization to survive. Now that Jack Holder holds the highest power in the United States, will the fate of the world favor the good?
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 Deering and his piece, The Brotherhood. 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, Kaye Turrill’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."
