Author Shares a Wife's Pain at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017

Online PR News – 15-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Angelleta Patten-Carter, author of A Wife's Pain-Filled Heart 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.

Angelleta Patten-Carter was born in Westmoreland, Jamaica West Indies and a mother of three. She migrated to the United States in 1991 and earned her GED and degree in Business Administration, a bachelor's degree in Paralegal studies and an M.B.A in Health Services Administration. She is a member of the Praise Team, Prayer Team, Prison Ministry, Team Board Member for Young Ladies Ministry and Vice President for the Ladies Ministry in Miami. Being a preacher of the gospel, Carter pens A Wife's Pain-Filled Heart, a story that opens her personal experiences that relate to the current situation of the society. It has been known that some marriages end up in divorce as some wives are forced to walk away from their marriages for so many reasons that boil down to the fact that they are not capable of coping. To all the wives, to all those who are suffering and confused, this piece encourages you to stand the test of time and let God be your guide through it all. Carter wants you to be strong and she wants you to know that God is always there for you, and just like her, you will definitely survive!

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 Patten-Carter and her piece, A Wife's Pain-Filled Heart. 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, Angelleta Patten-Carter’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."
