Author of a Poetry Book Shares Her Thoughts at the AJC Decautr Book Festival 2017
Online PR News – 14-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Angela Charles, author of the contemporary novel Jack Nicholson 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.
Angela Charles was born in the Carribean Island. She graduated from the University of Windsor in Ontario, Canada. She is an entrepreneur who worked primarily in the banking and insurance sector. When she is not attending to her several businesses and real estate holdings, she does her other passion — writing. She debuts her very first book Shared Thoughts, a piece that contains poems that retell the readers the importance of life’s simple pleasures. She purposely penned this book to let the people come to their senses that in the world today, everyone is competing against time to be able to keep up with the competitive world, and this makes them forget to slow down to listen and see what is around them. This book will uplift the readers. It will give them joy and peace, as well as the chance to reflect that after all, God still holds the perfect time for everyone and that life is meant to be enjoyed and appreciated.
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 Charles’s and her piece, Shared Thoughts. 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, Angela Charles’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."
