Author Talks About Camp Vernon at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017

Online PR News – 15-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017,Hugh Rayment, author of the piece Camp Vernon: A Century of Canadian Military History 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.

Camp Vernon: A Century of Canadian Military History is a piece written by Hugh Rayment and co-authored by Patrick Sherlock. This is a contribution that entails a century of Canadian military history. It talks about people and places, war and peace, young men and women who were eager to serve their country. It includes details about the Boer War, World War I, World War II, Korea are being presented; as well as the story of Vernon. This is a relatable story that every Canadian would appreciate, as the freedom that each one enjoys today, were fought bravely for, by the heroes of the past, the Canadian military.
