Author Imparts GATHER NO MOSS at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
Online PR News – 16-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – Claire Janvier Gibeau author of the fiction novel GATHER NO MOSS 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.
Claire Janvier Gibeau has had a long successful music career, having taught piano for 45 years; she is also a published composer of children’s piano music. She marks her debut in the literary limelight with GATHER NO MOSS, a fiction novel that is written based on facts, interwoven with fictional dialogue. Set in the late 1800’s to mid-1900’s, Olive Janvier journeys towards his success. Although he is not quite the “Black Sheep” of the family, he does not conform to the expectations of the Janvier family, and rarely commits himself to close relationships. With his main ambition of setting foot in all 48 states, he endeavors to become successful – which at some point he did. Olive Janvier obtains knowledge through his travels. This book is a must-read for all those who are into romance and travel, set in another era. GATHER NO MOSS contains a myriad of true historical events that are also current to the era.
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 Gibeau and her fiction novel, GATHER NO MOSS. 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, Claire Janvier Gibeau’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."
