Author Brings the Tarot of Human Experience at the AJC Decatur Book Fest 2017

Online PR News – 16-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Phillip Young, author of The Tarot of the Human Experience 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.

Phillip Young is the co-creator of The Tarot of the Human Experience. He created the book with photographer and graphic designer, Sasha Campbell. The book was derived from the question that they both have asked and answered: “What would a tarot deck look like if, first and foremost, it was designed to be a spiritual and psychological tool, not a card game? They describe the deck as having a potential to push tarot into the mainstream by using modern black and white photography and through the purposeful rejection of limiting and charged references for more common and accessible ones. The deck breaks with a number of traditions that are common to most modern tarot decks. The Tarot of the Human Experience has 98 cards instead of the traditional 78. This is an interesting read brilliantly prepared by Young and Campbell to unlock the readers’ spiritual and psychological fortune

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 Young and his piece, The Tarot of the Human Experience. 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, Phillip Young’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."
