Author Honors The Famous Performers of the Past at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017.
Online PR News – 15-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – Ronald Edgar Horne author of Famous Performers of the Past: Tips for Would-be Entertainers: Turning Pitfalls Into Box-Office Success 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.
Ronald Edgar Horne, born on January 9, 1953, is an American writer, life coach and inspirational speaker. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. After the success of his first book entitled The Student Guide to Learning: A Journey of Self-Education, he graces the literary limelight with another title – Famous Performers of the Past: Tips for Would-be Entertainers: Turning Pitfalls Into Box-Office Success, a book that accounts the lives of some past entertainers who have used their gifts to escape their unhappy childhoods, and have reached the highest level of success in the career that they had chosen. Horne honors the entertainers of the 50’s and 60’s as he puts their stories together in one, must-read, galvanic biography book. This book highlights insights that serve as a great help to the aspiring entertainers of the society today. It also includes the stumbling-blocks on the road to fame and fortune wherein the would-be entertainers can definitely learn from. The author gives the readers a wild yet realistic treat as the book discloses celebrity life, child abuse, drug addiction, and sexual madness. Most importantly, it gives all the possible answers to the ”why” questions that birthed from the saying that goes: “The egos of the famous people are pumped up and distorted by the admiration heaped upon them, then made paranoid and neurotic by the constant attention and scrutiny”, a famous quote by Noam Chomsky, Manufactured Consent. Horne indeed offers an appreciable memoir that every reader can enjoy up to the last page!
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 Horne and his book, Famous Performers of the Past: Tips for Would-be Entertainers: Turning Pitfalls Into Box-Office Success. 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, Ronald Edgar Horne’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."
