Children's Book Writer Joins the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017

Online PR News – 15-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Debra G. Watts, author of the children’s book Dean Goes Green 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.

Debra G. Watts is a University Supervisor who mentors practicum and student teachers for the University of Cumberlands. She lives just outside of Harrodsburg, Kentucky. She had written several pieces, such as Listening Guides to America’s Greatest Musicals, a teaching guide, two children picture books entitled CARter CAR AND His Wild and CARazy Birthday and Jude the Dude. Dean Goes Green is her third children’s book. This piece centers an ordinary country boy who gets to encounter an unusual situation — a bad one. The twist in Dean’s day will interest the readers as it affects the Earth, the planet we live on, and it only gets better until the end!

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 Watts and her piece, Dean Goes Green. 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, Debra G. Watts’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."
