Online PR News – 16-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – Alice Fay Wimberly (Kemp) Pastor author of the biography book entitled Syndrome of a Wife Batterer and Resounding Tribute to the Men Who Keep Their Vows 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.
Alice Fay Wimberly (Kemp) Pastor pens Syndrome of a Wife Batterer and Resounding Tribute to the Men Who Keep Their Vows, a memoir that act as a battle cry for domestic abuse. This book accounts the author’s experiences as a young girl, the time when she fell for a man who later became the most dangerous part of her life. Blinded with love, she ignored the signs and acts of abuse in her relationship with the hope that her husband will keep his empty promises. She believed that despite the loneliness and desperation, her husband would become kinder to her, but it only got worse. She recalls how she had vowed to protect her children – which made her decide to leave the life of pain, neglect, and abuse behind. Despite the new challenges, she was determined and persevered to start a new chapter of her life. This is an inspiring story of a woman, who was once a victim but strived to get her life back. Her honesty and insight provides a heartbreaking account of broken love and guidance that will encourage all readers to fight for their right. Now that Pastor lives with her new, loving husband, her relationship is simply built on trust, respect, and dedication to God. She aims to give the readers the realization that one should not become a victim of abuse. This is a must-read for all the women who need guidance.
