Author of a Motivational Novel Joins the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
Online PR News – 16-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Mathew Fink, author of the literary piece Be Still and Know: I Am That I Am will be one of this year's attendees to the AJC Decatur Book Festival's, 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 ineractive 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 hardwork 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.
Mathew Fink, a tutor/tennis teacher from Los Angeles, California penned this book to impart to the readers the transformation that took place when he decided to listen to his heart which led him to God. People will be able to relate themselves to his life story, as he used to be someone who gave 'success' an utmost importance. He was too focused on desiring to get the material things: a big house, an expensive car and a huge amount of money, and these things made him beat himself up working long hours. He lost control of his life until his soul could no longer breathe, until one day, he started to pray and that's when he found all the answers. He wants every individual to know that God is indeed the source of everything that exists, that there is absolutely more to life than the earthly possessions; and that it was through God that he is now able to channel the truth and the beauty of life through conversation and poetry in — Be Still and Know: I Am That I Am.
BookBlastPro will be representing Fink at the AJC Decatur Book Festival. The festival-goers and other authors will have the opportunity of getting first-hand information about Be Still and Know: I Am That I Am. 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, Mathew Fink'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."
